Fall is in the air

Here in Colorado the end of September and beginning of October mark the time of year that the trees show their fall colors. Today we took Jeremiah on a trip to see the famous "Colorado Gold" Aspen trees. Ideally we should have went last weekend when the trees were in full color, but there were still plenty of leaves on the trees today.

In fact, being a week late had one real advantage! We were able to have a photo session with Jeremiah on a carpet of fallen leaves.

Jeremiah loved looking at the trees and the leaves. For some reason he was absolutely
fascinated by the pine trees. We loved seeing the Aspen leaves dancing in the breeze and tumbling as the wind carried them off the treetops to the forest floor.

We also ran into some weather. As we were finishing up Jeremiah's photo shoot we were hit with a surprise hail storm. We quickly packed up the camera and our son and ran back to the truck.

Here are a few more of the many pictures we took today:

How nice to see some pictures of your area. The first one is gorgeous. Of course Jeremiah is cute as ever in his pictures. Sounds like you had a wonderful outing, except for the unexpected hail that is. Thanks for the update. Loved it!
