I headed West a just a tad this morning, and did a short-ish (5 miles) hike around a place called Caribou Ranch to see the fall colors as they are nearing their peak at the higher elevations. This link tells you a little bit about it's mining history (if you click on the "History" tab; this link tells you a little bit about it's music history.)
As in other posts, this is a post where pictures will replace words. Enjoy...
With dustings of snow in the higher elevations now and then, and the aspens reaching their peak fall color, we've unofficially entered Autumn out here. So, I took some time this morning to do some hiking and leaf peeping. Some pix from the walk in the woods can be found here.
