I took a drive over MacDonald Pass a couple of days ago. A few friends had mentioned the colors through there were spectacular, so I decided to go before I missed it. Fall is my favorite time of year for so many reasons. The air is crisp, but not biting like in Winter, and the forest is dotted with the vibrant colors of Aspen trees, making everything look like an impressionist painting. It's hard not to smile when you're driving through the mountains and everything looks like this.
