For those of you who've never been to Wyoming, here's one of the reasons I enjoy my adopted home -- beauty and solitude less than two hours from Cheyenne. For me, this was the perfect place to relax and reflect on all that's good in the world.
What's your special place?

This is another picture from the Snowy Range and the Medicine Bow National Forest. As you've probably guessed from the fact that this is the third photo from that area, I'm spotlighting the Snowies this month. They're not the most famous mountains in Wyoming, but the area is among the most beautiful.

If you were wondering, the Snowy Range is part of the Medicine Bow National Forest, southwest of Laramie. It's become one of my favorite day trip destinations, especially during autumn, when the fall colors provide a dramatic contrast to the evergreens and those white mountains.

Have you heard of aspen gold? That's the color most aspens turn each fall. These are aspens, but -- as you can see -- they're not gold.
Why are they orange this year? It could be the result of the drought we've had this summer, which can increase the concentration of the pigments that make leaves turn colors each fall.
Whatever the reason, the sight was beautiful.
