The weather here in good old Grand Lake has been absolutely fantastic the last few days. There is definitely a hint of Fall in the air. The mornings are a little frosty and a little fog rises off the mirror-still lakes as they start to cool off from the cold nights. Only the ripples from a few trout rising break the calm surface of the water. Afternoons are warm and sunny with only a cloud or two floating in the clear Colorado skies.
This picture was taken from Apiatan Mountain which is just off the Stillwater Road and not far from my house. It's a short climb to the top and from there are views of the Porfery Peaks, Cascade Mountain and Gravel Mountain. To the east you can see Lake Granby and somewhere in this picture you can almost see my place. The tipi is still up and ready for visitors. I know we'll have some on the first weekend of October. The race for the cure is Sunday, Oct. 5th and we're expecting friends from the flat lands to be here then. I hope the weather stays as wonderful as it is today. You just can't beat Indian Summer in the Rockies!
