Nature is everything. It’s therapy. It’s life. It’s spiritual. It’s silent. It’s serene. It’s the best medicine for the sadness we all face each day – day after day after day – with a hard reset from the news and happenings of the cause of that sadness. #notmypresident #resign

If you can get outside from time to time, get at it. Go on a walk. Take a drive into the country. Find a hike. Learn about birds. Stargaze. 
 
Fall is such a romantic time of year. The smells, the coziness of cooler weather setting in, oversized sweaters and nature painting with its best colors. 
 
Escape for a moment in ten fall foliage photos I’ve taken throughout Colorado, and let the wilderness and words cover you like the perfect blanket.
