They say it's important to stop and sniff the roses or in this case the wildflowers. I am not sure which one I like better, the red or purple ones?
There are fields and fields of wildflowers right now and we were even there for the "peak" time. I could only imagine. Now, I must say these pictures are missing something.....what could it be?
Ah, that's better. A picture of a fox makes the flowers sparkle, don't you think?
Back to Aspen. After a quick Hot Chocolate (thank goodness they have a Starbucks here) I am ready to explore.
At the top of the mountains in Aspen I came across this little shelter. I think it would be a great place for the stuffy convention. Nice views, good hiking, lots of food, wild flowers, and a free art museum for a certain mouse in England.
The storm wasn't as bad as I thought so we decided on one more trip to a different part of Aspen. Maroon Bells, the most photographed mountains in Colorado.
|I bet the water is a tad cold.|
|Good picture, hey where' the fox?|
Even though I was losing energy there was always time for a quick photo. The mountains are amazing.
This is an interesting sign. Good think Sequoia stayed at home.
|We did see a moose or two on the trail. They weren't too interested in us, more interested in eating.|
