Sweetwater Mountains - Ride through the Aspens

It's a bit of a bumpy ride, but I promise it's worth it.

River of Gold

Jimmy and I hit the fall color motherlode this weekend.

Sonora Pass had some of the best we've ever seen...

Till we got to the Sweetwater Mountains in the Eastern California desert.

The aspens grow along a river. You can follow the River of Gold all the way up the mountain.

We rode through several groves, leaves rustling and quaking in the breeze, leaves raining down on our heads.

Since we haven't experienced a New England fall, we can't compare our amazing fall color to theirs, but ours is pretty damn good, too!!

Day 3-5 Gratitude

I totally flaked out of posting my daily gratitudes here, so for continuity, I'll quickly update them...

Thankful Day 3:

1. Reconnecting with old friends. Staying in touch with family and friends here and on instagram. Love seeing all the reunion pics. (my high school had a multi-year reunion in September. I wasn't able to go, but I enjoyed seeing all my high school friends photos).
2. Being able to enjoy a city life and a rural mountain life.
3. Having a good amount of creative energy. I always have something creative going on.

Thankful day 4:
1. eye contact.
2. laughter and giggles.
3. forearms. um...did i just say that outloud? (ok, so one of my bff's and I have a recurring inside joke about forearms, but my husband will attest to my love of his forearms.)

Thankful day 5:

1. multiple farmers markets within walking distance.
2. griffins, unicorns, elves and imagination.
3. holding hands every now and then, even after 29 years.
