I missed much of the fall colors this year because my grandmother was gravely ill in Kentucky. So we packed the kids in the car and visited with her for two weeks in her home and the hospital. I took the pictures below on my first day back in Pagosa Springs. They are all taken up Nipple Mountain Road (FS Road 665) or the small Forest Service roads that branch off of it.
Unfortunately, I spent the rest of the week locked in the office playing catch up on the real estate business and had to watch the colors from my office window.
