The Leaves are Changing - Guanella Pass

Last weekend was fantastic!  I made only one request to the husband and he made it happen.  I wanted to take a few hours and drive up the Rocky Mountains to hopefully see the beautiful colors of the leaves changing.  We hit up Guanella Pass and it did not disappoint!

For us the drive is about 2.5 hours which is not terrible.  We couldn't exactly decide where to go so it took a little longer.  We had a carseat potty incident with the sassy princess and had to stop as well.  We were in no hurry.  However, by the time we got up there and out to take some photos, my little girl was crashed out.  So instead the hubby and I snapped some photos about 10 feet from our truck with the sleeping baby inside.

For my husbands first time using my DSLR he did pretty good!
I was working a lot with my new lens on my camera as well as continuing to practice learning the functions a bit better but I snapped a couple of these beauties and was really happy with the way they came out.  The photo on the left really was a bit foggy but I think it still turned out great.  That by the way is overlooking Georgetown Colorado if you were wondering.

We had such a great time we plan to do this every year.  However, next year we are heading up a week or two early because those Aspens were almost done changing and I don't want to miss those vibrant amazing colors or the time with my family.

Hope your fall is going splendid!
