River of Color
A stream of gold flows down the mountain near Ward in Colorado

The aspens have exploded in color here in Colorado.  We decided to take a day off on Thursday (9/28/11 for reference) and headed out from Denver up though Golden Gate State Park and then headed north from on the Peak to Peak Highway (119) to Ward.  The colors are incredible all the way, but one section between Nederlands and Ward was exceptional.  The entire mountain side was full of color and looked like a river of gold streaming down the mountain.  The colors came a bit late this year, but they are magnificent!  I’d highly recommend heading out to see them!  I’ll be posting a few more photos in the future as well for you to see so stay tuned!
