Top of the World at Summer’s End

It is still unseasonably hot for this time of year in this part of the country.  So for the perfect end-of-summer trip, my husband and I went up into the mountains for an anniversary celebration with friends.

The wild flowers seem brighter at 8600 feet.

At 10,000 feet the air is thinner, the skies more blue, the trees more green.  Just beautiful!

And of course, the end of the summer means the start of football and everyone that knows me knows that I am a Denver Bronco fan.

A wonderful end to the summer season and a great start to the football season!
