Parting shot...

Great fall run at the Garden - wanted to get the photos up for some fall colors.  A little over 15 miles and 2600' elevation gain.  Great day - photos tell that!

Double Delight - last rose of the season.  We brought it in to save it from the frost!!

Happy Trails!

2600' ... I am always in awe of your elevation. I must learn to be uphill stronger!! The last rose is soooo pretty, I love roses! Glad you saved her for a little extra life before that icky front comes through this week!

Hope you're out enjoying this beautiful Sunday!

Stunning. All the pics but especially the first one. The sun has been hiding around here.

It's crazy to imagine frost already....

I would love to run Steamboat, but I'm always nervous about attempting the CO marathons because of the altitude. Do you think I can handle it? Would love to attempt it.

I recognize a bunch of these from the FatArse event last year. Good stuff.

I was thinking for April Fools you could do a spoof of some run through the alley ways of Denver - just to offset some of this pristine beauty you always post.

Beautiful! I just cut my first roses of the season. We are in a heat wave waiting for rain. Thanks for sharing the photos.
