Photos of the Week – October 5, 2019

Kim and I took some vacation time this week. Despite living 8 hours or less from the Rocky Mountains for most of my life, I’d never been out to see the quaking aspen in its full golden glory before now. Boy am I glad I fixed that. Here are a few photos from one of our hikes near Ouray, Colorado. More to come next week.
