If you didn’t get up to the mountains to see the aspen in their splendor, tough, you waited too long. But, we went for you, so enjoy the show.
Strip mining off of I-70, it’s kind of ugly and pretty at the same time.
Starting to see some aspen.
Just past Blackhawk, looking back.
A little farther and….aspen gold (and orange and red.)
Hannah hamming it up.
Grace, with a few smiles.
Bethany looking 13.
The main attraction.
Distinctive aspen bark.
Picture postcard to order.
We stopped in Nederland and ate at Back country pizza – be willing to wait to get pizza like this.
They still have some Summer flowers around town.
We let the girls ride the carousel.
We stopped in at Buffalo Bills train cafe and got some dessert. This looks like a fish eye lens shot, but I don’t have one of those.
Inside the train car.
Last stop for aspen.
This is why you should have gone this weekend to see the trees.
George helped drive us home.
Hope you had a nice trip!
