Every year we head to the mountains for a church workers conference. The conference usually occurs just as the leaves are turning their colors.
Since I like to view beautiful scenery and because there was road construction being done on our usual route we decided to drive on the scenic road of Boreas Pass.
I think we caught the tail end of the leaves changing color and falling off the trees. Nonetheless, it was still pretty.
Did I mention that Boreas Pass is a bumpy, dirt road? I think it added about an hour to our drive. My children were thrilled.
The weather seemed to turn colder earlier this year giving us snow-capped mountains on our arrival to Breckenridge. The snow usually pays a visit on the last day of the conference.
As we continued down the road less traveled we spotted a deer. It scampered away too quickly, so we weren't able to get too close.
We found a random little lake with snow-capped back drop. I think I could live there, maybe. Could you?
And, that's about as much 4x4-ing as we were able to do in the bad boy of a tank. There was no jeeping for us this year, but that's ok. It was a fun tradition while it lasted. ;)
