This is Colorado

Ah, fall.... I love it. Especially when the weather stays warm. Last week I went on a nice but gray-day hike, and this weekend I went on a glowing sunny-day hike. It took forever because I kept stopping on the drive and then on the trail (so much for aerobic exercise) to take pictures. I mean, how could I not? This is just a fraction of what caught my eye!

Oh yeah, a note on where I was--I hiked out to Lake Isabelle (and a bit beyond) in the Indian Peaks Wilderness, just past Brainard Lake (which is the first lake pictured below). Hooray for fall! I mean, yeah, the colors, but also the fact that I can wake up leisurely and do a few things around the apartment and *then* decide to go on a hike. No afternoon thunderstorms anymore. And, hooray for UNAVCO getting a day off for Columbus Day! I went hiking on Monday and hardly saw anyone else on the trail. And, of course, being normal people, they were on their way out when I was on my way in. Yes, I had a headlamp. No, I didn't need it. Note that the dark pictures make it look like it was a bit darker than it was. Not that I'll deny that I was up there for sunset. My friend Jen gets up early early to get all that early morning light. I say evening light suits me just fine. Here's to dusk!
