Very early we rose on Saturday morning, got all our chores done and headed to Grand Mesa
Where some good people, friends of ours (who live on Grand Mesa year-round), offered to take us on a four-wheeler trip to Green Mountain and back to their house again.
We rode in a bright chilly morning,
Stopping along the way to view the burst of joyful color on the land and the amazing blue of the sky
By mid-morning, the air was soft and warm, with a gentle breeze now and then causing the yellow leaves to drift down of us as we rode along.
Forty-two miles round trip we went…over and under and around so many gorgeous places
The exhilaration of the views, the physical demands of the ride, and the good company we enjoyed made for a day most special.
