Wow....didn't realize how poorly that picture of the leaves changing turned out until I got home and saw the blog. Let's blame the camera phone and not the photographer.
So, here is a larger account taken with my regular camera. Colorado gets lots of yellows and not really much red, purple, etc like other parts of the country. No complaints. It's really beautiful.
A few pictures near Maroon Bells in Aspen.
You can almost see the trees transforming color. This change doesn't last long....just a few weeks each year. At this time, too, more wildlife are present due to the early snows pushing them down from the mountains.
