Just cruisin' 145 today. Surprised how the leaves are hanging on this long in an area I always thought peaked early.

Last gasp for fall colors in the San Juans. This is the popular overlook on the Dallas Divide, plus a few cottonwoods just down the hill.

Thanks to all the contributors sharing their gorgeous shots!

I just came across this Sonnet that I thought appropriate to share in this thread. It was written by Gary Frahm, an Episcopal priest who served in NW Iowa, who passed away in 2002, but who obviously visited Colorado at some point in his life.


ASPENGOLD

I would not trade this sight of aspengold
on autumn mountainsides for any thing!
The rubies of an oriental king
could not suffice for payment, were it sold.
The time may come when I am hungry, cold,
in want for comforts only coin can bring;
I'd still not sell this treasure, but would sing
in penury of wealth I now behold.

The memory of this bright loveliness
will be both bread and clothing to my soul,
a store against the future's leaner days.
But, come what will of poverty, distress,
I am recipient of this rich dole,
and shall remember it with grateful praise.

Gary Frahm
