The mountains are bursting with color. Chris and I went for a hike with some of the crew yesterday. We went a little ways down the Boulevard Trail. It took a while because I kept stopping at every corner to check out the amazing colors. The mountain ash berries are fire engine red. The mountain side looks like a patch work quilt made out of mountain ash berries. They are a brilliant red at the moment. The temperatures are dropping. The high yesterday was 53º with another low of 26º. I found some evidence of the cold nights while hiking on the north slope of the Boulevard trail.
