ABC Wednesday: K is for Kenosha Pass

I (Grace) had a chance to spend a weekend in Denver, Colorado ten days ago. The autumn colors just started around that time. My friend took me to Kenosha Pass which is southwest to Denver. It is about 10,000 ft in elevation. As you can see from the picture above, the day started with a beautiful blue sky and a few clouds.

Notice that the clouds began to gather, and started to rain after we finished our sandwiches. The next day, the temperature dropped from low seventies to low thirties with about 6 inches of snow!

Here is a closer look of the aspen trees with white barks. The leaves of the aspen trees have just turned yellow against some evergreen conifers in the background.

Beautiful photos! I am visiting Denver next week. I hope the aspens wait for me; I love their golden color.

That first photo is so lovely. I wouldn't mind seeing that in real life!

Beautiful aspen shots! A classic indeed. I, too was looking at aspens perhaps not too far from you this weekend "as the crow flies". I was in northern NM not too far from the Chama area.

The fall in the US is always so beautiful. I love your photos.

I have not answered your question about which template I use because I need to do some "research" about it. I'm not very good at that. I will ask one of my blogger friends to help and I will come back to let you know..

Have a great week.

what a strange shade of green these appear to be - thanks for the Marconi Beach link.

Wow, what gorgeous trees! We will be travelling to Aspen in a couple of weeks - I hope some of the leaves will still be on the trees, by then!
