Autumn in the Colorado Rockies

I'm on vacation.  While I'm gone please enjoy these photos from the San Juan Mountains in Southwestern Colorado.  All pictures were taken around Lake City during the month of September.
As always, click on a photo to enlarge.

The perfect spot to curl up with a good book.

  1. Those are all phenomenal photo's, but the Aspen Leaf on the Trail really stands out. What vivid color amongst the browns and grays. I would put that in a frame and hang it in my house.

  2. I agree - these are spectacular and worthy of a book, fine arts display or calendar.

    Hope you had a relaxing vacation and enjoyed "Harry Potter"!
