Colorado gold and blue

It is peak time for the fall foliage in the Centennial State’s high country and it is absolutely gorgeous up there. My son and I took a 230 mile trip yesterday, leaving well before dawn.

We headed west from Denver to Breckenridge then up and over Boreas Pass, our first destination. On the north side of the pass, it was quite like winter with 27 degree temperatures, strong winds and a fresh layer of snow.

Just over the other side, where this image was taken, it was a good bit warmer but not so warm that there hadn’t been some overnight snow (you can see it on the ground on the left). The road was lined with golden aspen trees and the clearing skies provided just a hint of drama. The sun shining through the trees lit up the leaves making for a very nice scene.
