The Great Color Hunt of 2015

So - this morning I hopped in the van with these three goofballs...

and this hottie here... to head out to search for some of the gorgeous colors of fall that these Colorado mountains are known for providing.

The internet poo-pooers were saying we were way too late.

But we take the colors of fall dead serious - and we were super set on seeing some!

And as we headed up over 10,000 feet - it did not take long to come across some bright awesomeness!

I mean - they were everywhere.

And sure... I guess if you're a Colorado Fall Aspen Color Expert (or Elitist) - maybe some of the leaves were down - but WHOA! - God makes some pretty awesome pictures out there!

We even came across a SASS-pen Grove, if ya know what I might be saying!

Soon enough we rounded a corner and we're looking down on the old gold mining town of Cripple Creek!

Pretty cool place in the middle of the mountains!

We drove through town and then headed towards one of the old mines...

Z-Dogg was real interested in the historical background of the area.

I think he wants to be a gold miner...

I absolutely LOVED today - seeing these guys loving His beauty like I do...

We even busted out the tripod and got a family pic - cuz we NEVER get these!

But this one here captured us a bit more accurately...

Great time today guys - loved every second of it!
