On a recent trip from Santa Fe back to Denver, our GPS took us on a back way via highways 64 and 160 and we couldn’t have been more pleased. We got home 45 minutes quicker and had a heck of a scenic drive. I got a long look at the Spanish Peaks that I did not know existed so far to the south and was intrigued. I will definitely have to make my way back down for some backpacking one of these days.
The aspens were already starting to change which always adds beautiful color to the otherwise drab colored mountains. With the first snow in the mountains last night, the leaves will start to change rapidly, and I need to plan a few trips.
