Autumnal Colorado

Not so recently, I went to the mountains with my mom.  It was a lovely venture into Colorado’s mountain ecosystem, with the leaves changing and all.  Enjoy the pictures!

About MurasakiOkapi

Work has taken over a huge portion of my life in recent years, but I am trying hard to get back in the habit of being at least marginally creative on a semi-regular basis. Other than that, I'm a nature enthusiast and love all animals. I try to see things from many perspectives, and live on the sustainable side. I wouldn't say I'm a positive person, but at the same time I don't tend to get too down about things.
