Autumn daze …
The Golden Road (to unlimited devotion) …
“See that girl, barefootin’ along,
Whistlin’ and singin’, she’s a carryin’ on.
There’s laughing in her eyes, dancing in her feet,
She’s a neon-light diamond and she can live on the street.”
FRISCO — Heading out to walk the dogs near Meadow Creek Monday afternoon, my eyes (and camera) were immediately drawn to the contrast between the sunlit aspens along the road and the mountain backdrop, receding into evening shadows. Immediately, free association took over and an old song started bouncing around inside my head — The Golden Road (To Unlimited Devotion). It is, of course, the very first song on the very first Grateful Dead album, and the beauty of the day in the Colorado high country definitely made me want to dance a ring around the sun. Here are a few more shots that (I hope) capture some of the stellar fall vibe we’ve been enjoying in Summit County.

“So take off your shoes, child, and take off your hat.
Try on your wings and find out where it’s at.”
