~A Walk into Fall~

a walk into fall

canyon bursting with color

sunshine is warming

on my skin and in my heart

do I return, winter waits

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.

    1. 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!

    1. 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.

    1. 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!

    1. 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.

      1. 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.
