Bear Lake, Rocky Mountain National Forest

Amazing, how quickly time goes by. A full month without blogging, so easy to get caught up in the rush of life. I need to remind myself to take time to write, it feels good knowing that I am sharing my thoughts and photos with others and that I have a voice.
I wanted to share a special trip my son and I took last month at Bear Lake, in the Rocky Mountain National Forest here in Estes Park CO. It was only a hour drive from us, this place was just amazing to say the least. Every year my son and I go hunting for the colors of Aspen when Fall begins in the higher altitudes. This year we found a beautiful place in the mountain that has a lake and on the lakes surface was the reflection of the Aspens warm glow. It was simply breathe taking. We walked the edges of the entire lake and drank up the cool fresh air. This quickly became one of my top 3 most treasured beautiful places I have been too.


  1. Fall in the US - wherever you are - always looks so spectacular. While living in Western Canada, we were privileged to share it and this year, we've had a simply wonderfully colourful - and long lasting - autumn here in the UK. Pity it doesn't last long and is something of a "dying" glory - but it makes one look forward to Spring all the more. You certainly conveyed the beauty of your surroundings - and so glad you and your son so obviously enjoyed it! Dropping by via the Blogging Buddies site - from
