We were nominated by fellow blogger, ProjectRelish, for a seven-day photo challenge, so we will be posting one of our nature pictures every day for the next seven days.
For day 2, we decided to use a picture from closer to home. Living in Colorado, we love to hike and we literally have hundreds of pictures of the mountains, waterfalls, and trails from throughout the years. Since both of us grew up on the east coast, we definitely know the beauty of the northeast in autumn, but there is something about the brilliant golds of the Aspen trees that we simply love. Last fall, we went hiking at one of our favorite spots and then drove into Cripple Creek for a late lunch. On the way back, we saw the sun shining on the hills across from the road and simply had to stop the car and take a picture. We loved the patchwork of colors that blanketed the hillside.
Rules: Post one nature photo and nominate someone else for seven consecutive days.
