San Juan Autumn Escape

I cannot endure to waste anything so precious as autumnal sunshine by staying in the house. – Nathaniel Hawthorne

Despite the many pressing needs and responsibilities demanding our attention now that we are back home from Scotland, Marilyn, Duffy and I decided to take most of the day off on Tuesday and venture up into the mountains. The air was fresh and alive. The Fall colors were resplendent and there was some snow from a recent storm.  The sky was mostly cloudy with patches of sunshine trying to shine through from time to time.

So here’s a few photos from Durango’s back yard. Most of these images need to be viewed larger.  Double click on each one to make it so.  Onward.

  1. OH! Such a walk you had! I too love the image that is your favorite with the stalwart pines at the front followed by the gold, orange, green, and yellow Aspens all zig-zagging against the hilltop are a wonderful tapestry of color ringing in the season. The Orange though are my favorite!
