Fall in Aspen, or, Perfection

One of the most incredible places I’ve visited since moving to Colorado? Aspen. We headed up to Aspen to visit friends this fall, and I can’t get it out of my head. A few snaps of the weekend exploring.

The drive to Aspen is incredible. On the way up, it was already dark, but Sunday was such a surprise!
Aspens!
Aspens!

We pulled off the road to take in more of the view. This hardly does the scene justice.

If one day I can live in a forest of Aspens, I’ll be very happy.

While on the trip, we headed up the mountain on a lift and went for a hike. A must-do if you visit Aspen.

This ragtag bunch made the trip!

At the top of mountain is a little cabin which we paused at for a bit to rest and take in the view.

The weather changes in a second. See the clouds in the picture above? Always on the lookout for storm clouds.

These two. Look at those smiles. Aspen is beautiful. So are the people.

Remember when I said Aspen is beautiful? ❤ the mountains.

Driving! We took Independence Pass instead of the main highway. Highly recommend it for the views.

That said, it is not a drive for the faint of heart…

Cheesing at the Continental Divide. By cheesing, I mean freezing. SO cold.

Always thankful for tourists who swap photographer duties. Especially when they know how to use my camera better than I do.

Very different scenery without the sun. Worth the pull off and quick walk on the path to see.

Can’t wait to go back to Aspen in 2015. It is a must. And now that Leo is back home for good from his international work adventure, we can plan it!
