We went out yesterday morning for a quick drive into the mountains to see if we could catch any fall color.
It was a spectacular day - just as early fall should be in Colorado, crisp and dry and not too hot.
The colors have not reached their peak yet, but there were all sorts of wonders of the season to discover!
View from the foothills down the front range to Golden Gate Canyon.
The backroads were nearly empty and it felt like we had the world to ourselves!
On the way down, we stopped for a cool-off in the river and to let the dogs play fetch and cool their heels in the mountain water.
