"In Every Walk With Nature, 
One Receives Far More Than He Seeks" 
~John Muir


How true this quote is! The colors are just starting to change in the Mountains above Santa Fe, and I as much as I was tempted to say to myself I was too tired to hike today... I knew my soul needed to get out there. So glad I did!


The air was fresh, the sky blue... and the sound of the wind rustling through Aspen leaves was like music to my ears.
:)


Have you ever noticed it looks like they have eyes? Aspen are one of my favorite trees... though I've yet to meet a tree I didn't like!


I found a tiny little creek with miniature waterfalls...


And hidden treasures!


I return rejuvenated, and I'm reminded once again how much beauty is in this world.

I lived in Santa Fe and remember cutting down our own Christmas tree in the mountains there...I don't remember the Aspen trees, but they are lovely and like you, I've never met a tree I didn't like.

You take marvelous photos - I "stole" one as my desk top for a while. Thanks!

Small treasures are the best - they can add up to something BIG! Great fall shots, Becky - keep some of that color 'til I get there, OK?

You've captured the beauty of the day, that's for sure! I love the aspen trees. The water shots were so refreshing!

Beautiful photos of beautiful scenery, Becky! Your Aspens look much better than ours. It's been so dry here that most of them just turned brown and shriveled up. But your photos help me remember autumns past. :)

Kate said...

Yes, there is much beauty in the world, and you managed to capture it with your photos.
