Our route took us over Kenosha Pass, elevation 9,997 ft. Obviously, we weren't the only people out to see the colors.
Some areas of the Colorado mountains have been decimated by the bark beetle, leaving large stands of dead conifer trees. But that obviously hasn't been a problem where we were traveling. There is a healthy mix of green conifers and aspen trees.
Even above timberline, the mountains are beautiful. We come from a beautiful state.
Just look at these hillsides.
When we got to Breckenridge, we decided to get some exercise. Flowers grow willingly in hanging baskets around the town.
These were in a flower box along the sidewalk, rather than in hanging baskets.
You can sit and rest a while in this area along the main street.
And another of a pair of donkeys carrying the miner's tools.
