Fall in the Rockies


If you grew up out east, fall in the Rockies is a little different. Fewer colors, but brilliant splashes of gold in a striking setting. Different, but lovely in it’s own right. Anyone who lives in a mountain town in the fall is familiar with the influx of “leaf peepers” who drive up from the city every year to witness the changing of the seasons. Today I present a small photo retrospective.

The view headed east on I-70 a few years ago.

The Indian Peaks Wilderness

A particular stand of Aspens in the Indian Peaks Wilderness. They are considered a single organism as they share a root structure underground.

Capitol Hill in Denver, where fall looks a little more familiar to eastern transplants due to an abundance of non-native tree species.

A road trip to look at nature is a pretty solid activity in the time of coronavirus since it’s easy to avoid other people while in the comfort of your car. Do prepare for traffic and pack snacks. Happy fall!
