Ghost Town Jaunt

Over the weekend, my family and I had the great pleasure of traveling to Colorado’s San Isabel National Forest for my niece’s wedding.  It was a lovely outdoor wedding…the weather was perfect and the fall color was at its peak.

The aspens positively glowed against the dark green spruces and the clear blue skies.  San Isabel is in the Collegiate Mountain Range and is known for its many “fourteeners”-mountain peaks over 14,000 feet.

In between the wedding festivities, we had time to hike, luxuriate in the natural hot springs, and visit a ghost town!

St. Elmo was once a gold and silver mining town of nearly 2000 residents.  Now it is a ghost town….and some even say it is haunted…

As with most vacations, we came back rejuvenated and happy…and delighted to have our phone and internet access once again!

Sunshine in the Garden

It is Saturday, and what a lovely day it is!  Sunflowers seem to emit their own light…

Autumn begins today…which means that summer is over and winter is on the way,  but I don’t mind so much when I have these lovely petals to gaze back at me…

I hope you have a Saturday jaunt planned for the day… I do….more on that next week!
