Happy Tuesday to you. I hope you had a wonderful weekend(this was supposed to be posted yesterday, but I put the wrong date) and enjoyed some nice weather. Here in northeast Colorado, the colors are beginning to change. As with most of the country, the weather this year has been different than normal and we are seeing this manifest in the lack of trees changing color. Hubby's schedule has been so busy lately, so I told him we needed to get to the mountains before the trees have all changed. So Sunday morning we hit the road with our destination being Grand Lake; we drove through RMNP and were surprised that we didn't see many Aspens that had changed or any Elk. After all, it is Rutting season and normally they would be stopping traffic. We then took Trail Ridge over to Grand Lake and began to see some colors. We had a lovely lunch in a quaint place called the Sagebrush Grill; I loved all the antique farming tools hanging on the walls. This little town is so cute and fun to walk through. In one store, I heard a clerk saying the colors had already peaked. We knew we would have quite a drive home, so didn't stay too long. On our way to Granby, we began to see some of the colors we were what we were looking for. I still long to get back to Maine and New England to really see the intense colors, someday.
Share a smile with someone you don't know today, it may just brighten their day and be what they need.
