Sad to Say


After tomorrow we will be leaving Grand Mesa. We have had a wonderful stay and the camp host and campsite were great. Today was our last trip down to Montrose as we will be heading north when we depart Wednesday morning. The Starbucks in Montrose always got my drink just right.

We were finally able to obtain an image showing a good portion of Grand Mesa during our return trip up the Mesa this afternoon, it is below.

A portion of Grand Mesa, much of it is over 10,000 feet in elevation.

We are somewhat sad about having to leave as the aspen leaves are just beginning to turn golden. We have to be in Boulder, Colorado for a few days before we venture out into another part of this state hoping to find aspens more colorful. Below are a few images we hope you enjoy.

While the aspen are not golden this was
On a lake near our campground.
A few aspen almost golden.

    Excellent photos, a very pretty time of year. I enjoyed a visit to Boulder when I was in Colorado, lovely walks along the creek.

    Hate to see you depart all the aspen trees when they are not yet bright yellow. However your images are lovely. Wish we were still there.

    I have been told of many Moose sights in the Spraig ( sp?) lake area in Rocky Mt National Park. You might want to check on that with the Ark Rangers if you will be near there. I think the Aspen I. Your photos will be changing to full gold in the near future. Nice photos!
