Last Thursday we had our first winter snowstorm, and it was a special treat since we still have our autumn leaves. The electricity went out for a few hours, so I was able to get away from the computer and take a bunch of photos.

The bad weather followed us on over to Owl Creek Pass, but I had the feeling if we didn't go that day we would miss our chance to see the leaves changing. The cows were out enjoying the colors, too!
Cloudy Silver Jack Reservoir with Courthouse Mountain and Chimney Rock in the distance.
Chimney Rock and the location of the big shootout in the original "True Grit."
Last Monday after hiking Jud Wiebe I wanted to see more autumn colors even though it was so cloudy and rainy. We drove down the Dallas Creek (County Road 7). There was a little cloud hanging around the top of Mt. Sneffels for awhile.
I have been taking so many pictures of the golden aspen leaves that I haven't had time to get them on the computer! Last Sunday the kids and I drove up Last Dollar Road for some photos. There were sheep grazing above the airport and some of them coming up into the road.
