    I have no idea how to get the pictures from thumbnails to big, so you will have to click on it.
    There are pops of color, especially in the wetlands or cooler valleys, but today, I expected to see more in the cranberry bogs in Carlisle. I think one more week until we are at peak.

    Rebecca, stunning photos as usual!

    Helene, here's some more to show your DH -- make sure to scroll down to the aspen portion of the post! I agree that Colorado is crazy beautiful! It's too cold for me much of the year as I am a warm weather gal, but I can certainly see the attraction.

    And thank-you, Rebecca. Wow!

    Our color is all but over. The trees around the house have lost about 80% of their leaves, now. Not a great color year, but I do love riding this time of year, chilly though it may sometimes be. Yup, below freezing, tonight.

    If anyone lives on the prairie or has pics of the prairie grasses in their fall color, I would love to see them. Trees get all the publicity when it comes to fall color, but, being the prairie girl at heart that I am, I think the subtle color of the prairie in the fall is quite lovely.

    Keep those pics coming, girls.

    Does this count? It was a little early for the best of fall color but still very pretty:

    Sure does. Have driven through the area, but never camped there. Does bring back memories. Thanks. Funny how most people visualize mountains when they think of Colorado, but much of the state is grasslands. Same story for most western "mountain" states. Have actually dreamed about bicycling the open country of eastern Montana with a strong tailwind at my back, pushing me at insane speeds. No traffic, of course, the sky blue and the temp just right. Of course, it was a dream.

    Sounds like a lovely one to me! So long as you don't have to turn around and ride into the headwind, turning a pleasant dream into a bit of a nightmare!

    Glad you enjoyed the pics. The grassland was really pretty to me!
