A short bicycle ride down our road reveals that this is indeed the first day of autumn. The leaves are just starting to change and the aspen trees are getting yellow. The air is crisp, smells of fall, and I thought I had better get these photo's now as I recall in years past when I waited it was regretfully late. Either the wind will blow all the leaves off the trees or the snow will cover them up.
So here are some photo's of our road on the first day of fall. The colors are forecast to peak in two or three days. When they do it is breath taking here in the mountains for as long as the snow holds off. Some area's of Colorado mountains has already received snow fall, so you never know what tomorrow will bring. Or for that matter what later this morning will bring. We enjoy the color change while we can because sometimes it is very short.
