Mt. Rosa with Fall Color 9/20/14

Looking at last year's photos, I think fall came a week earlier this year.  We hiked Mt. Rosa from the forest service road, about 4.5 miles round trip (runtotal 134 miles).  Ending elevation 11,504 ft. We saw the great color at the Penrose-Rosemont reservoir from the summit, and since it is situated right near the start of our forest road, we then went down to the reservoir to get a closer look.


Pikes Peak - maybe similar to Pike's view when he summited Mt. Rosa

After I posted, Google "auto-awesomed" the above photo and here is the result.
