Yesterday we took a trip to the mountains to see the fall foliage. Colorado doesn't get that really pretty variety of color you'd see on the East Coast but we do get mountain sides of gorgeous golden Aspen and it's worth a day trip.
Found some friendly horses in Como off of Hwy 285.
Going up the pass, eastern part of the Divide.
This pass is a dirt road and closed November to June. Might I add a warning ladies, if you decide to do this, wear a sports bra....just sayin'.
Jason pretending he's falling off the side of the mountain. He thinks he's so funny.
At the top of Boreas pass, Continental Divide. This is a section of the old railroad that originally went over this Pass. We're at timberline. It was a good 25 degrees colder then Denver.
I will most likely never get these two to smile at the same time.
Most of my pictures are like this!
My hubby is so cute....
Before the railroad this was a wagon trail for settlers and Gold Rush guys....I'm so glad I'm not a pioneer...and now I know why my ancestors stayed in Denver...one look at that mountain range and I'd be saying, 'no thanks, that's fine, I'll stay right here thankyouverymuch!'.
I think he's smiling because his brother is not in the picture with him. Maybe Christmas pictures this year will be two separate pictures of the boys.
West side of the Divide. On the way to Breckenridge.
