While I have enjoyed a tree in my back yard in the fall-it is orange and gold-it is pretty exciting to drive up to 10,000 feet above Santa Fe’ and see mountains of golden aspen. I loved it and it was only a 40 minute drive or less. It is so interesting out here-fall comes and several plants bloom. So there are wild purple asters and at the same time the trees are changing colors. You also get allergies that I usually consider spring like. However, the past 3 days have been cold and cloud covered. Looking forward to tomorrow and sunshine and the balloon festival in Albuquerque.
