Rocky Mountain Front Fall color

Colorful aspen creep up the Smith Creek drainage

That's Crown Mountain behind the color

The Smith Creek bottom

Some of the aspen had an orange-red tint

Reds of the rose bushes added color to the yellow aspen backdrop 
I've been traveling out of state (Mom, 50th class reunion, new grandchild), so posts have been missing.
Tuesday was my first chance to get out, and I went immediately to the Rocky Mountain Front, where the Fall colors are in full force.
We went to Smith Creek west of Augusta.
We hiked from the trailhead as far as the Petty Creek trail junction and went up Petty Creek for a short distance.  That trail leads to the base of Crown Mountain.
