Sheri's Fall Trip to Fort Collins, CO

In late July Jerry, Sheri'd dad,  moved to Fort Collins, Colorado to live close to her sister Kerry and her husband Brandon. . Sheri went to visit them in late September.

Jerry now lives in senior community on the outskirts of Fort Collins.  He has a view of Long's Peak in the distance and is 15 minutes from Kerry and Brandon.  He is settling in and is realizing this will be the first winter in 20 years he won't have to plow his driveway!  Kerry and Brandon have worked hard to help Jerry settle into a new place and he seems to be enjoying life in the wild west in a slightly more "urban" environment (after living in Tidioute, PA for 20 years, most anywhere is more urban).

In  late  mid-late September the aspens turn a lovely yellow.  Kerry took Sheri and Jerry to Estes Park to take in the fall colors.  It was a beuatifully clear day and the blue skies off-set the bright gold colors of the aspens beautifully.   Along "trail" there were big horn sheep in Pouter Canyon, Elk and other leaf peeping wildlife.  A picnic in the park with summer like temperatures even at high elevation was a treat!
