more reasons i love fall!

we had a nice hike this morning up into early snowfall

it's been so long since i've been in the mountains that i was afraid that i'd missed all of the aspen, but luckily i was wrong. we found beautiful perfect glowing quaking aspen today. the overcast emphasized the golden color of the leaves. i love aspen trees. they are home to me. i'm always pleased to greet my friends, especially when they show off in the fall.

leaves like gold coins in the stream

and on the ground

willow leaves like confetti

dead trees looking like wings

the promise of a new season's growth

the road goes on forever

so happy to get out in the mountains with the camera and enjoy and share such beauty. i'm so inspired- be fun to see what comes next

What a great hike, Marianne! I love the rain drops and mist and all the sodden leaves.
