Colors of Autumn

Posted on by Angela Kauffman

Living in the Midwest, we don't bat an eye when the weather dips and turns.  It can seem like summer one day and winter the next.  But there's always a bit more excitement when fall colors begin to appear.  This year, I was able to travel out to Colorado to see how they do fall.  We were there at the peak of the color and - WOW - the fall colors came out in all their glory.  I've seen a lot of pretty trees in my day, but I don't think I've ever seen such vibrancy as I did out west.  It felt like God was putting on a brilliant display just for us.

Driving almost 2,000 miles across the state of Colorado meant winding our way up and down mountain passes, traveling a bit too close to the edge of mountain drop-offs, and reveling in some of the most awe-inspiring landscapes I've ever seen.  It also meant that I was photographing - a lot.  Since I probably took just shy of a billion pictures, here are just a few to give you an idea of the beauty we saw.
