Colorful Saturday

East of Grand Junction, there is a mountain called "The Grand Mesa." It is the largest flattop mountain in the world (at least that's what people around here tell me). The last two Sundays in September are called Color Sunday on the Mesa. We wanted to get out and enjoy the fresh air and beautiful colors, so we drove up to the ski resort and hiked along the cat trails (I'm not sure if that's a technical term, but that's what Jackson calls them). My favorite picture of the day is below.

Gorgeous! The vibrancy in those photos is amazing. I love the one the three kids together. It looks like they are great friends.

I love it. Fall is wonderful--I just wish winter didn't have to come so soon after! :) It's so fun to look at all of your pictures.

The colors on the Aspens are amazing! It is crazy for me to think that leaves are changing colors when it is still so hot here-it is like endless summer!

What amazing pictures! I am so sad we didn't make it up there to see the leaves before the snow arrived. How lucky we are to live in such a beautiful place!
