The color of the aspen trees in the campground and surrounding forest were great! As the weekend progressed, I could see the color deepening and the greener trees were showing a bit more gold. Around the campground the gray squirrels were scurrying to their storage holes with unopened pine cones. The ground around the hole opening was littered with the remains of the pine cones after the squirrels removed the 'nut'.
Overheard two teenaged boys as they walked by our camping spot: "Siri? Siri? Are you there?" LOL! There was absolutely NO cell service where we camped at 8,100 feet elevation.
Despite the hands, it was a wonderful relaxing weekend. Just what I needed.
