I’d love to say that I hiked for hours to get this shot, but I can’t. I took this lovely autumn from a very easy to get to place. The Estes Park Visitor Center. Estes Park is a beautiful city. It sits at the meeting of two small (in October) rivers. This is the Big Thompson River (after their meeting). The green area in the distance is the golf course where the elk like to hang out. I could have stood on that little bridge for a long time, if I didn’t have a busy day planned.
