Emerald Valley

Here are the last of my photos from Sunday's hike in the Emerald Valley area, off Gold Camp Road just west of Colorado Springs.
Near the beginning of the trail we found a ruined cabin.
We crossed a small stream a couple of times.
The fallen leaves made for a beautiful trail.
It was a lovely hike, and the photos qualify for both Scenic Sunday and a meme I don't believe I've joined before, Weekend Reflections.


  1. What a beautiful walk you've taken us on today, Al!! I love the golden colors, the lovely reflections in the water and that wonderful old fireplace! Don't you wish it could talk!! Have a great weekend!

  2. That's a magical place : you must have had so much fun taking those pictures... It shows !

  3. There is nothing like autumn in the mountains. Great pics.

  4. Hi Al..I am still out here somewhere..thought it was time I stopped by!!
