Tour De Marriage Photos

Part Two

A few more photos from our Colorado trip.

It was still a bit early for the aspens at the higher elevation of Grand Mesa National Forest. The acres of yellow leaves in the fall must be a sight to see!

A marmot watched us carefully from his lair in the rocks beside the road.

A grouse in the Gunnison National Park let us get only so close before flying away.

A yellow warbler was singing to us as we walked along the Gunnison River at the bottom of Black Canyon.

At this lower elevation, the aspens were a beautiful pale green.

About halfway up the canyon road, the aspens were a little further behind and decorated with tiny yellow-green leaves.

Near Placerville, we stopped for lunch alongside another river and found a lovely, coppery birch log shining in the sun.

Next up, red rock cliffs and wildflowers along Highway 141. Cheers!

  1. Aspen trees nestled between the shrub-steppe and a Ponderosa Pine forest are the most beautiful trees in the world. The end.
