One of the more colorful groves of aspen that can be found along forest road 730 on the way up to Ohio pass in Central Colorado. This particular grove always puts on a great show and changes at least a week earlier than the others around it.
A virtual waterfall of color as the aspens put on the fall show. This area is known as the Dyke which is a thin spine of rock running south from Ruby Peak. This entire area is filled with aspen and is only a few miles West of Kebler Pass in the Central Colorado Rockies on FR12.
The trees in this photo turn the same shades of yellow, orange, and red every year. Aspens almost always spread by root, so each of the colored sections are actually all trees that share the same root system.
[Insert quote about journeys] Actually, have you ever just wanted to play on railroad tracks? Even knowing these tracks have been abandoned for many many years, it was exciting in both a giddy and scary way to walk on them for the first time. These days, they're a place to walk dogs, sightsee, or hop over quickly from condo to Starbucks or get fresh bread at Avon Bakery & Deli #smalltownfun#vaillive
Looking out across the valley towards the "Castles" from halfway up the side of the Anthracite Range north of Gunnison, Colorado. Lots of clouds and lots of color! More to come from this fall (still fighting with my new computer...). Shot taken 10/01/2017 with my Samsung S8+ phone camera.

Rock face mountain. This shot was captured near independence pass in central Colorado. We decided to do some rock climbing on our drive around the highway 82 loop, the weather held up for us which was surprising I wasn't sure If we would have to turn around due to storm clouds following us. It was a great day trip indeed.🚘🏔📷
Took a walk this afternoon with Boo & some cheap beer... We checked out the new pigs and Boo was so riled up to make new friends that he trampled my beer and tracked mud all over my clean pants. Moral of this story? Never bother to wash your pants (they'll be dirty soon anyways) and never put your beer down around a dog.
Social media: I casually strolled outside to snap this picture, I was wearing an adorable outfit and I reflected about my life. Reality: I ran up a steep rocky hill far too fast, fell three times and was soaked from head to toe. Another reality: it was amazing, and my life IS pretty sweet.
A year ago I couldn't find this couloir or name the peak I'm standing on in this photo. Put in the research work over the winter, only to have my ACL graft fail this spring and take the meniscus and LCL with it. Thought I wouldn't be able to get into the mountains this touring season but thankfully I was able to bounce back for a few more.
Saturday turned out to be a perfect day for a hike, and even more so with max participation. Excited to see local folks excited about their local public lands - #blm Himdman Gulch below Table Mtn, Echo Canyon. Photo Curt Nimz. Speak up for these unprotected BLM public lands that are currently under a public comment period. Learn more at www.WildConnections.org. #blmwild#wildcolorado#centralcolorado#mypubliclands#seeblm
