If I had a reliable car, I'd make more trips to the mountains. Seeing as I don't, I went to a trail at the base of the foothills in Golden.
Remy, my brother, and Terra (parent's dog) joined me as we did a trail hike for a little over an hour. We would need to be higher up to see the Aspen trees in full color, but leaves are starting to change down here.
Foothills (entrance to the Rocky Mountain range), and Clear Creek. Yes, that's the actual name. ;)
Slight incline, but an easy hike.
Terra, looking for fish.
Exercise = heavy panting = flappy tongue Remy.
On the way back, my brother and I stopped into the Coors brewery for a beer. Just kidding. However, when driving by the factory one is always overwhelmed (in a not good way) by the smell of barley. Not really a Coors gal anyway.
Prior to the hike, I made a trip to the Farmer's Market. I have a mixture of seasons represented:
Golden beet bunch (my first time purchasing!), HUGE cauliflower, Honeycrisp apples, big spaghetti squash, broccoli. $17 total - a slightly higher total, but I've already had an apple. . .absolutely worth it.
