The fall colors are always a wonderful sight in the high country of Colorado. Janet and I recently spent a happy weekend in Grand Lake, CO at the Black Bear Lodge. Our hosts, Robert and Therese were warm and welcoming, and it was good to see them again. At the advice of a friendly ranger at the Kawaneechee Visitor Center near the west entrance to Rocky Mountain National Paark, we traveled west from the park to Colorado Highway 6 and motored along a gravel road skirting the western edge of Granby Lake. The aspen were in full fall colors all along the route. It was difficult to decide exactly where to stop and take photographs! I decided to try my hand at a nice roadside scene. A beautiful line of aspen was across a short meadow, and between the meadow and road was an old log fence. I crouched down on the side of the road (savely away from traffic!) and took a series of photographs. The accompanying photo is the best one of the lot. In fact, it is the favorite of my Facebook Friends after viewing several of my high country photographs. I like this photo because it really sets a nice scene. The line of aspen across the meadow beckon the viewer to come wander, and the fence provides a great easily surmounted barrier to overcome. The high country was exceptional this season, and I hope you have an opportunity to enjoy it!
