Yesterday, Wednesday, according to our calendar, was the first day of autumn. Zeb and Soapy discovered autumn colors in the mountains. We went to Echo Lake, near Idaho Springs, Colorado. Driving down the road we admired the fall colors and the brilliant blue sky.
Of course, we had to look back and see the colors from the other direction.
Beautiful, isn’t it? Looking through the trees, we saw the golden aspen leaves and the majestic Rocky Mountains.
Here we are at Echo Lake.
We loved the reflections on the water. The gold aspens and the fluffy white clouds reflected on the lake made us smile. It also made us hungry. The restaurant in the Echo Lake Lodge provided us with a very tasty lunch.
We are so happy we live in Colorado.
