Vista after the rain.
Moss-floored forest, like something out of a fairy tale.
Biggest 'shroom I've ever seen--the dollar is there for perspective.
Tweensy shrooms. Didn't get proper focus on this one, either!

Aspen leaf--the trees were only just beginning to turn gold.
This pretty much summarizes the state of Colorado right now. This was a narrow, clear brook before--now it is a raging monster, far over its banks and tearing away loose earth and gravel by the cubic meter.
