aspen

Fall In Colorado

So, me and a friend went hiking yesterday in Rocky Mountain National Park. Well, actually, we bailed on the hiking bit (sort of) when we got there, because it was cold and windy as hell up there and the roads were closed up past Sprague Lake due to ice. So we went around taking pictures of the aspens and such instead. Which I guess is kinda like hiking.

It was a beautiful crisp fall day down lower, though (and still warm down in the plains here, of course).

Anyway, lots of pictures were taken, click through for the set, yadda, yadda.

The aspens were looking pretty good -- we were surprised they still had their leaves this late:
