Looks like a great trip!

I think Colorado will have to be next year's trip. Haven't spent time there (other than the Denver airport) in 30 years. We're overdue to return. Lucky you to have this gorgeous place as your next assignment! Looking forward to your "reports." =)

Just lovely. I enjoyed sharing as getting there would be just a tad expensive for me (international air fare etc). This is a definitely an area I'd like to visit some day.

I lived in the mountains of Colorado for nearly 45 years, so this brings back great memories.

Here is a link to my MACRO MONDAY Do hope you can stop by for a visit!

Beautiful time to be in the Rockies. Looks like the fall color is about to burst into its splendor. Enjoy. Soon, the mountains will be cloaked under their white blanket of winter snow and all will sleep until spring.

Are you guys going to work on a project there or just visiting?

EG Wow said...

I love that you got so close to the fox!

VM Sehy Photography said...

Definitely priceless. I lived in Colorado for awhile, and I miss it. Love the fox photos.

Raising Addie said...

Great catch on the fox!

How close did you get to him?

Nice!! Love that a fox came your way too! :0)

Love the photos. They look "oh so familiar"! But, today, those very mountains have lots of fresh snow all the way down to 7500'. Winter is here! You chose the right time to visit!!!

KaHolly said...

Ahhhh, yes! Brings back many fond memories of living in the Rockies many years ago. Beautiful photos! Thanks for visiting my blog! I was delighted to see you and to visit your blog in return. I look forward to a few quiet moments to peruse your archived posts. Perhaps you'll, in turn, find time to visit my Cape Breton blog, ksdoolittle to get a little taste of Nova Scotia! ~karen

Rebecca said...

Oh lucky you! I was there once and hope to get back there someday. Saw my first moose there.

George the Lad said...

Thank you Ben and Carrie, for sharing your gorgeous photos of the season my get-together last week. I featured/highlighted it and your blog this weekend so others could check you out. Thanks again and I hope that you join us again on Seasonal Saturday or Fresh Clean and Pure Friday at la bella vita.

Love your photos!!

joolsstone said...

Just stunning. Glad I found you through tbex. What type of fox is that then? Very jealous of your trip!

Johnny Nutcase said...

hey there! I haven't had a chance to really check out your blog yet (lots of traveling). Good stuff, i'll have to check out more! Endless time in an NP - ideal, indeed. Looks like an awesome time. Love that fox, cool leaf too!

Anne Kostalas said...

That is one expensive latte and one beautiful fox. A friend and I joke that when you take a good pic people will say, wow you must have a great camera. You answer should always be - it's not the camera it's the photographer. Thanks for a great blog.

Carol And Stacy said...

Great shots! My son loves foxes. I almost thought the big boulder on the the other boulder was a bear. (The picture your kicking back looking through binoculars) It looks like you are enjoying the great outdoors! What would we do without such a beautiful planet?
