Aspen, initiating color change, carpets the rugged Sandia mountain peaks. Only a short drive and a two mile hike separates me from urban sprawl below. The view is always breathtaking, but the fall weather, lighting and autumn hues make it even more so. I’m always amazed by the contrast of the rugged rock being softly hugged by the aspen display. The affect on me is a soothing one, putting everything in balance. I hope that you, too, are taking a moment to reflect in nature.
