At Home, Photos-Landscapes, Poetry ~A Walk into Fall~ October 8, 2013 Sheila 14 Comments a walk into fall canyon bursting with color sunshine is warming on my skin and in my heart do I return, winter waits Beautiful Aspens The Devil’s Backbone Trail Shadow Colorful Colorado Boulders Native Plant Beautiful Colorado Mountains The Devil’s Backbone Trail looking east Looking east from the trail. Hogback close-up The Devil’s Backbone Native Plant, close-up Changing Colors This past Monday morning a friend and I went on another hike, back to the Devil’s Backbone Open Space Area, which is practically in our backyard to the west of us. It was wonderful to see some fall color; a fun hike for sure. Like this:Like Loading... Related

Beautiful…love the Aspens and the beautiful mountains, Sheila!
Hi Barb! Glad you liked my photos! The Aspens are beautiful, especially this time of year.
Love fall in Colorado. Looking forward to more fall photos before the snow flies. Happy trails 🙂
Hi Ingrid! Fall in Colorado is beautiful! You left a tad early; wish you were here! Not sure how many more hikes I will get to go on. We have been busy with getting ready to head out. Hopefully, a few more. 🙂 Have fun everyday!
So many lovely colors and textures in your pictures. Your poem acts as a most wonderful prelude to your beautiful photos. 🙂
Hi Dear Cubby! Thanks so much for mentioning the poem! I am glad you thought it was nice! Also, I appreciate the mention of the different textures in the photos! I love trying to capture the many different textures in what I observe. I hope you are having a great week.
beautiful, all absolutely beautiful.
I am honored that you think my photos are beautiful. Your words warm my heart! Thanks so much. Hope you are having a great evening!
Ty and I am having a very relaxing evening and hope you are too.
Wish I were there! My hiking boots are collecting dust….so sad!
Beautiful pictures as always!
Gay, come on over to colorful, beautiful Colorado and we will do some hiking! Sorry, your boots are collecting dust! 😦
Next year ya’ll need to stay a little longer out west!
Thanks so much for your sweet words!! Enjoy your days!
Nothing more spectacular than fall in Colorado. 🙂
Hi LuAnn, Colorado is beautiful! After being here for 27 years, it became easy to take it for granted. Recently we have come to realize and truly appreciate just how lovely Colorado is and recognize again the reasons we moved here.
I think it is easy for all of us to take aspects of our lives for granted. I remember, even in Phx when I lived there (and couldn’t again because of the heat), one day seeing Camelback Mountain through new eyes after many years. And that is nothing compared to the gorgeous scenery in Colorado.
