Rocky Mountain National Park

Last Wednesday hubby and I ventured up to the high places-i.e. Rocky Mountain National Park.  This is one great fellow that we saw.  I was surprised at the low number of Elk we saw, only a couple of herds.
Mainly I wanted to see the colors; although they aren't at their peak yet, they are beginning to change.

We drove the Peak To Peak highway to see if there were differences and there were-much more color.  We passed this church and I don't remember having noticed it before.  So pretty and the colors surrounding it were so vivid.


  1. Beautiful photos of beautiful scenery. What a fantastic drive you had. Blessings!

  2. A friend of mine's daughter lives in CO and she posted a picture of the aspens on fb yesterday that was just breathtaking! So pretty!!!

  3. Noreen, Colorado in the fall is mind blowing! Thanks so much for posting the amazing photos......Denise

  4. While my first "love" (as far as destinations are concerned) is the beach, I certainly did enjoy our visit to RMNP last summer ... and would like to return some time soon. Wanting to see the beautiful gold of the fall aspens makes me think that a fall trip might be in order. We saw what we thought were a lot of elk when we visited - we were able to get quite close. It was amazing.

  5. "Kathy...better known as Nana" took the words right out of my mouth!
    Golden aspens are like twinkling stars, simply beautiful.
    Blessings, Kathy

  6. WOW gorgeous crisp and beautiful...makes me want to step into the photos! So glad you and your hubby and a great time!

    Love your heart!!

  7. Beautiful elk! So nice that live close enough to go for a drive to the mountains-what a blessing.
    Another blogger has this church on her post too. I think she was there for vacation-small world!

  8. Just beautiful. Looks like a great drive, especially this time of year.

  9. Gorgeous photos and I love the picture of the little church. Fall has just come to our part of the country, we had our first cooler temps this past weekend

  10. Hi Noreen. I wanted to pop over and check out your blog. Thank you for stopping by mine. Your pictures are BEAUTIFUL!



  11. This is just beautiful and so relaxing..something about nature that just makes your soul peaceful.

    My Dad use to go Elk hunting.

    Oh your daughter's dog...I hope she is enjoying, we enjoy ours. She has now realized the 15 year leaves for the day and she starts to the door when she thinks he should be home.

    Prayers for me...well just some life adjustments and new faith walk for adult know life! God is good and faithful....blessings and thanks

  12. Thank you so much for sharing
    these wonderful pictures. How
    I'd love to visit! Just beautiful.

  13. Good morning! Oh what gorgeous pictures...I am sure it was even more breathtaking in person.

    The book intrigues me for some reason ...I am thinking maybe my 10 year old grand daughter might enjoy it. Maybe even the one who is nearing 8.

    Hope you have a wonderful day my friend! I am in serious Sam withdrawals over here, haha... : (

    Love you!

  14. I just love that last picture...
