Fall foliage photos are a dime a dozen in Colorado, but this one really caught my eye. I’ve tried for years to describe a brief walk I once took near Estes Park, and have always failed. This picture comes very close to what I remember.
On a warm sunny day I wandered down a narrow trail through a grove of golden aspen. It was a surreal. The ground was gold, the trees hugged me with gold and formed a golden vault above. The air itself glittered gold with falling leaves. Gold in every direction. Unforgettable.
