A Quick Trip to Colorado for Fall Color

September 21, 2016  •  Leave a Comment

I made a quick trip to Colorado last week to catch some fall color and to see some wonderful friends. We scored what might be the most epic campsite I've ever stayed at and spent a couple of days in White River National Forest, just north of Vail. We hiked the Upper Piney River Trail in the Eagles Nest Wilderness Area and found some vibrant aspen trees which made us very happy. 

Along with nice fall color we saw 4 moose, which is more than I've ever seen in one trip before. They came out at dusk so pictures weren't easy to get, but I managed to get one of a mother and a calf. 

Overall I'd say it was a very successful trip. One for the books!

Below are some of my favorite pictures from the trip. 

Hope you enjoy,
