On the other side of the pass we drove along Taylor Reservoir. Such beautiful colors with the black and brown cows amongst the sage colored bushes. Truly cattle country.
Here's Mount Crested Butte.
One day we headed north and drove past Gothic up into the mountains. The field of red was breathtaking.
The Aspen were just starting to turn their colors. I am sure they are at their peak right now.
Len and I have been coming to The Pioneer Guests Cabins off and on for over 23 years. In the earlier years my parents would drive up from Scottsdale and join us. It is a perfect setting. In a canyon, the Cement Creek runs along side the cabins. There is a fire pit with comfortable wood lounge chairs around it and a big picnic table behind each cabin.
With a full moon, the smell and sound (and warmth) of a crackling fire, steaks on the grill, great company and a glass of wine, what would be better! We certainly had a perfect weekend.
