I took a little excursion up to Rocky Mountain National Park today, and the fall colors were amazing! Living in Denver definitely has some great perks and advantages – one being that we are extremely close to places of awe-inspiring beauty. The drive to this location is about an hour and a half – and is accessible from Bear Lake. The hike isn’t hard, and is family friendly (for the first mile – I actually did 5 1/2 miles each way, getting up to some more remote scenery).
This photo was taken on October 1, 2011, and serves as a reminder to me why Denver is such a great place to live!
