The other day we were talking to one of our AirBnB hosts, Janette, and mentioned that it had been 14 years since we experienced fall and its corresponding foliage. She suggested that we take the road up to Telluride to see the colors. So this morning, Mom and I hopped into Red Rover and hit the road, camera at the ready.
We crisscrossed over the Delores River a couple times as we wound our way up the mountains.
The sky was getting darker as we continued up, but the view of the mountains called us forward.
We even passed by an alpine lake, though we began to notice precipitation starting to show up on the windshield.
Eventually, we realized that the precipitation was actually something we haven’t had to deal with in 14 years. Snow. Big, chunky snowflakes were falling all around us. So, we made one last stop at an overlook for a couple more pictures before heading back down the mountain and back to our AirbnB to get ready for the next adventure.
