As you may know, I am usually not short on words when I write these posts. However, no words can really describe the beauty of the change of seasons here in the mountains. I thought I would share the experience with you this year.

Wow, that’s gorgeous! It’s hard to find words to describe these views other than that. Enjoy the fall colors! 🙂
Beautiful Photos! It’s hard to believe Fall is almost oficially here, even though it’s already looking like it outside.
gorgeous pictures! I can’t wait for fall! although, I suppose it is here, we are just having too warm of temps for it to be fall this week! 🙂 visiting from mingle monday!
Beautiful pictures, I love the butterfly:)
I hope our Autumn weather cooperates with the season more than our Summer weather did! I think we had about 5 days of summer. However, this time of year is probably my favorite, and always makes me yearn for a trip to the mountains. Glad to see you’re enjoying yours!
Just lovely…these pictures make me miss my home…Colorado is lovely during this time of year too!
Speaking my language. Mountains are home.
I’m stuck for words as well. Just breathtaking.

I’m from Colorado and have been away for some time. I cannot wait to get back. There’s no replacement for that crisp mountain air.
