Travel over Buffalo Pass in Steamboat, and found the colors radiant. Something about the curves of dirt roads call me, take one more curve, still one more, stop and relish standing in quaking Aspen, seek creatures on hillside appearing and disappearing before your eyes, and then let's take one more mile down the road.
the turning of a leaf
dancing in an autumn sun
and brilliant shades of crimson
glowing when a day is done...
