It's my favorite time of the year, when the air is crisp and cool and the leaves begin to change their colors. The Aspen trees in the Sangre de Cristo Mountains are turning from chartreuse to deep golds to bright orange and even to bittersweet red.
Every year the ski area runs their lifts so folks who only like to hike down the mountain (like me) can enjoy the beautiful scenery.
Being in the mountains is like being in a sea of gold!
