Back up to Rito Hondo; Quilt Show in Creede

Yesterday we went back up to Rito Hondo; while Don wanted to fish the little lake again, our main purpose was to see what the aspens looked like.  We saw that most of them have turned and there are even patches where all the leaves have fallen off. That happened up on the mountain across from our campground, too - a cold front came through with some big wind gusts, and cleared big patches of aspens.



 This is Mount Baldy Cinco, 13,383 feet.  It's visible from across the upper Cebolla Creek Valley. It's the first mountain south of Spring Creek Pass along the Continental Divide Trail (going north).

On Friday, Don and I went over to Creede to the Silver Thread Guild's annual Quilt Show. You can read all about it here.

Yup.. the leaves in Wisconsin are starting to turn too... many not so bright because of the drought mid-summer. Not many reds or oranges--- But lots of yellows like yours.
