Summer's Gone

It's official - summer's gone, as we got our first snow on Friday, along with a temperature of 18 F (-8 C).
Looking out our front door it seemed like winter.
But of course, here in Colorado bad weather doesn't last for long, and this was the scene in our local park when I took Socks for a walk this afternoon (the temperature had rebounded to 58 F, or 14.4 C).
I love walking along a sunny trail in a pine forest.
The views towards Pikes Peak are lovely.
Near the end of the walk we approached the lakes.
The sun reflecting off the water through the aspen leaves is welcome.
I leave you with this one final reflection.

  6. The gold of the turning Aspen leaves is always so beautiful. We used to live in Colorado -- such a gorgeous place any time of the year!

  7. Hi Al,

    Snow already? It seems unfair. However, your blue sky is special. Thanks for sharing your blues.

    Happy Blue Monday!

  16. The changeable Colorado weather still surprises me. (When the kids first lived there, I'd read in the paper about a heavy snow or blizzard and when I'd call to ask them how they were weathering the storm, they'd tell me it was shirtsleeve weather already).

    The park is beautiful.

  26. It looks beautiful there no matter how the weather is. It was about 80 here today. I can tell it's Fall though, because the days are shorter...

  27. No snow here, yet, but it is really chilly. My propane heaters are going strong. Your mountain peaks are so much higher than our Blue Ridge. So beautiful.
