Went to see the in-laws in Pagosa springs Colorado recently. Was lucky enough to see the Fall seasonal change in the trees as well as the first snow. They live in a remote and rural area in the mountains at around 7000' elevation. This is part of the view from their porch!

Now there aren't many palms in CO but I DID find something palmy.....stay tuned to see.

It's nice to see seasons change in the country where trees like aspens flare their color.

At this point I accidental hit a dial on our SLR camera and all the photos from here are over exposed. A klutzy mistake but the pics are not too ruined to show.

Thanks everyone. It was nice to get out on the road again. The guys guys I was surfing with this morning were talking about all the times and areas of Costa Rica they have experienced. Think it's time I went there for a change!

Thanks for the trip Vince. Reminds me of home in Montana. BTW I have seen these same palms growing there. And, they seem to go right through the winter with no damage. I love the smell of the mountains where the aspens grow.
