[Looking west from the road between Gunnison, Colorado and Crested Butte, Colorado, late September, 2018]

This year I was lucky: I caught Colorado's fall foliage at its peak. This is always a tricky proposition, as the colors peak at different times in different locations in this large state.

I liked this picture because it made me think of the pioneers who gave up everything to go west, knowing they would never again see the old folks at home.

As I gazed out on this scene, I wondered who might have homesteaded here, and wondered what they thought of the colorful diorama that unfolded before them every fall. They were probably working too hard to notice.

Here's wishing the JPG Family a joyous Happy Thanksgiviing!
