Exploring Our Side of the Mountain

We are quickly understanding why people move up to the mountains and stay forever. It's wonderful to have such amazing beauty and open space just outside our door!

This is our house on the left...looking down the valley.

Walking down to the creek...on quiet mornings if we stand on the deck, we can hear it rushing down the mountainside.

The aspens surrounding our deck...these beauties have since dropped all of their leaves. We've been watching the seasons change before our eyes...we feel so much more connected with God and His creation up here!

There is a great hiking/biking path just minutes away.

We admired the glowing aspens...

...and gathered up treasures to take home.

The next time we explore this trail, we will most likely have our snow shoes on!

How have you been exploring the world around you this fall season?
