Now we were off to begin our driving adventure across Colorado into Utah.  

.   DRIVING TOWARD UTAH

The trees had started to turn colors, especially the aspens and cottonwoods.  Since this is something we don't see much in Texas, I felt compelled to take pictures of all the colored trees.

.   It was also interesting to see the wide variety of terrain and foliage along the route - dense pine forests and snow at one extreme, and barren, rocky, dry, dusty desert scrub by the time we reached Utah.

Lake Lake
Our first stop was Georgetown, CO.   Georgetown is quaint and scenic, and there is a spot along the highway where Bighorn Sheep can sometimes be seen on the side of the mountain.
