Turning the Page to October

Welcome to October, my favorite color. Time to change the month on your calendar and since no one complained about seeing more images from Vail, I thought share another one from my recent trip taken on a hike Saturday morning. Not only was it a picture perfect day, the health app on my phone was tricked into thinking I’d walked 25 flights of stairs along the DaVos Trail in West Vail. That cracked me up but now that I’ve been home long enough, the lactic acid buildup in my calves suggests it was more than accurate.

Autumn, Vail

The changing of the aspens is a annual ritual in the Colorado High Country and starts with ribbons of color weaving through various kinds of pines and rock formations. It’s one that makes your heart sing with ooh’s and ahhh’s as you take all that beauty in to your soul. Typically you stop periodically to check the view. As you savor all that beauty, that scenery (as well as the exertion) just takes your breath away. And then you find a whole new religion.

Happy Tuesday.

Live, love, bark! ๐Ÿพ

  1. Fantabulous, Monika! Keep on sharing! I have zero trouble with that! And I betcha you did more than the 25 floors claimed ๐Ÿ˜‰

    I’m very religious – but has zero to do with any doctrine or organised religion. I’ll pray at the altar of Mother Nature!

    1. It sure seemed like it. ๐Ÿ˜‚There was more than a 5000 ft increase in elevation.

      Iโ€™m with you on worshiping at the altar of Mother Nature.

    1. October seems to be the favorite of a lot of peeps. Blue skies like that are welcome every day ๐Ÿ˜Š

    1. October makes the autumn transition a beautiful one, even if that white stuff is probably just around the corner.

    1. Thanks for the kind words. I’m not very religious anymore but I swear my ‘faith’ was renewed when I saw that scenery.

        1. Amen…hallelujah, Marco. These days I attend the Mother Nature Church of Beauty and Spirituality.

    1. Thanks John, Mother Nature is quite the composer when it comes to conducting a symphony of beauty. โ›ฐ
