We noticed today that the fireweed has bloomed to the very end of the stalk. In Alaska they say this indicates that fall is over and winter is near.
Another indicator is the aspen leaves beginning to change to their fall golden color. There are a couple of images below which indicate that this is beginning to happen.
Perhaps another indicator of winter approaching is the return of some migratory waterfowl. Below are a couple of images of a few ducks resting.
Our stay in Colorado is nearing its end. We are hoping by late next week we will be headed home. First though we will be going to Colorado Springs, Colorado to hopefully be able to share with you some images of the balloon fiesta they are having over Labor Day weekend.
