Blazing Aspens

 Last Sunday we took the kids for a drive up the mountains to Kenosha Pass to enjoy the beautiful fall colors. 
 We got out and did a little hike which the boys always love. 
 Avrey on the other hand had fallen asleep on the way there and was not as thrilled to be hiking! 

We packed the grill and enjoyed dinner up there as well. Beautiful it was! 

Later in the week, Jeff decided to go back and take his bike up in the same area. He timed it just right as a lot of the colors were still peaking.
 The Mosquito Mountain Range through a grove of Aspens.

  Above treeline and 11,000'. 
 At the summit of Georgia Pass along the Continental Divide. Jeff said the 3 hour climb was well worth the trip as the views were incredible. He was by himself up there, which I'm not too thrilled about, but he brought home some great photos.
 Looking north on the way down.
 Looking west toward the Mosquito range and Breckenridge.

We are definitely ready for fall after our record breaking summer heat, and absolutely love living within such beauty.
