9/23/17 Cloudy Day in Victor

Amber and I set out Saturday morning to drive up to Mom and Dad's cabin and see the aspens in all their glory ahead of snow expected this week in the high country. 

Aspen weekends always make me terribly grateful I get to live here. This weekend turned off cold and cloudy, so very little of the Colorado bluebird skies to speak of, but still breathtaking.

After lunch with Mom and Dad, we set out towards Cripple Creek and stopped in a the new lookout tower over the gold mine. They've used one of the mining dump trucks at the viewing platform, and you really can't appreciate the size of these things until you're standing next to it. Note the comparable size of the handicapped parking space to the left.

These last shots were taken one handed while driving, just shooting through the windshield.
