My visit to the Colorado National Monument was about the land, physical features. When I left there, I was searching for color, specifically fall colors. I revisited the Cimarron CO area. It had produced well in the past.
A few days of rain later, I was having my doubts. Then, just at sunrise one morning, with more storm clouds coming in from the west, I woke to see this out my back window.
OK, it wasn’t the color I was looking for, but it was nice, plus, one of the benefits of this lifestyle is that it is easy to be patient. As the stormy weather cleared, it began to look like my wait might be rewarded. That evening, the view to the west looked like this.
The color was definitely coming. The next morning, there was more color in the campground.
Jim, Kathy and I went up to the area east of Owl Creek Pass. We were rewarded for the drive with wonderful color.
I can now head for New Mexico, having seen the golden aspens in full color.
