Bob and I did one of our let's go get some exercise hikes. We follow dirt roads and ramble through the Buttermilks. Some past trips in October have turned up pretty fall colors, other times nothing. We got lucky and hit the peak of water birch color. We also found patches of aspen in vivid yellow.
We also found fall colored birds, Evening Grosbeaks. Their yellow and browns mimicking the leaves.
It was glorious!
