Time to get out and enjoy some beauty of the colored leaves and cooler temps if you are able. For those of us in Arizona, our most pleasant weather has just begun, and we experience just a slight difference in the changing of the seasons. Fortunately, within a short drive we can quickly change elevation here in Arizona and head for the mountains. I definitely look forward to being able to take a drive now and then to enjoy some fall color and snow! Even a trip just a little north to Colorado is definitely worth the drive!

Durango & Silverton Narrow Gauge Train in the Fall, Durango, ColoradoThe Durango & Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad is one of the most scenic train rides in the country, but for me it most enjoyable in the fall season. The addition of the golden aspen and snow on the mountain tops made it a perfect trip.
