When my daughter’s boyfriend suggested Aspen Alley in Breckenridge for leaf-peeping, I said, “What?” How did we not know about this spectacular hike? Dan, (not to be confused with my husband, Danny) found the gem on an app for mountain bike trail. Amazing!
Despite back-to-school and football games, people flocked to the mountains enjoy the fall color. Some flew. I met women on the trail from Pennsylvania and Chicago who hit autumn at its peak, perfectly.
Notice how white Roxy is? She soon goes incognito.
It was a bluebird day with brilliant color above 8000 feet. The aspens in Breckenridge were still green.
My obligatory tree top photo.
Loved these sibling aspens bent as if in conversation across the trail.
The color change could be seen in our dog too. Danny and Courtney walk them on the trail.
Can you find Roxy?
Lots of fall photos to come. Watch for some almost wordless posts with autumn feels and linkage to my favorite hikes. I LOVE this time of year!
Do you go leaf peeping? Do you enjoy fall? What’s your favorite season?
