Autumn up in the Sangres

Yesterday we took a ride up into the Sangre de Cristo Mountains over Santa Fe, to see the fall colors - the aspens trees are reaching their peak. Some areas are completely golden, and others have yet to turn color, which may mean another trip later this week.

Lots of people up on the mountain road yesterday, checking out the wonderful fall scenery.

Every fall when I see the aspens transforming the mountains, I remember the saying "Life is not measured by the breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away." Then John and I look at each other and marvel anew that we are living in what we believe is the most beautiful place in the country, at least for us.
