Friday Field Trip - Back to Florissant

First - don't forget the contests. Deadlines to enter are this weekend.
Second - Happy Friday the 13th.

Yesterday, hubster and I went on a drive through some of the back county roads, saw two wild turkeys and went back to the Florissant Fossil Beds National Monument to walk the Petrified Forest loop again.

I know I posted pictures from there once before, but I thought it might be interesting to do it again. Unlike Florida, there are SEASONS here, and the difference between June and August is noteable. Besides, it's just a darn pretty area. And hubster was happy because it's been raining a lot, and there were mushrooms. One Friday, I'll get him to share his hobby.

If you're interested in comparing the views, the original post is here.

Gorgeous - nice and green. You don't have too much summer left. I'm looking forward to seeing some aspen photos :)

Terry Odell said...

Mason, no problem. We had a great walk, it was gorgeous, so why not share?

TerryS - Yep - a very welcome change from Central Florida.

Carol - We're already significantly cooler than down in the Springs. I'm waiting to see the aspens turn--we have a grove of them right off our deck. It was amazing to watch how fast they went from "sticks" to full-leaf. Days.

We have a lot in common. We both write mystery and romance, and we both love the Colorado mountains. Smile.
