One of the reasons we like to do this ride in October is because of the abundance of Aspens in the area and the hope of catching them in their brilliant fall colors. Gorgeous mountain peaks, one of the most beautiful lakes in the world and Aspens showing off their fall colors, it doesn’t get much better “Blessed are those who trust in the Lord…They are like trees planted along a riverbank, with roots that reach deep into the water. Such trees are not bothered by the heat or worried by long months of drought. Their leaves stay green, and they go right on producing delicious fruit” Jeremiah 17:7-8
