Friday, we went for a walk along the Platte River Trail. We were there a couple of weeks ago, but since then the temperatures have cooled and fall colors are showing up, especially in the cottonwood trees near the river. It was a beautiful walk.
In a few places, we saw some red leaves. I believe they are sumac.
Saturday we were able to see a few high mountain peaks covered in snow. Sorry, no pictures. But this change means one thing for sure. Snow birds--count us among them--are headed south for the winter. We think we will be leaving Tuesday.
