Giving Her a Memory by Jacob-Routzahn Giving Her a Memory by Jacob-Routzahn
On somewhat of a whim, the wife, dog and I decided to go for a overnight camping trip along a stretch of road I often passed while working for the Colorado Division of Wildlife. Knowing that the leaves were in full color, and that Rach has never witnessed the aspens changing in Colorado, I thought it was only right for us to go out and see them.

We found a nice little area to setup and after the tent, fire and other necessities were ready to go, I grabbed my gear and went down the road to this beaver pond. The dam was old and sturdy and held my weight with ease. I set up in a spot I felt was good and waited for the sunset. The evening colors were subtle, but allowed the trees to take center stage.

Not only were the yellows of the trees so amazing, but also the calmness of the evening. Usually up on this pass there is at the very least, a steady breeze, however. On this evening I lucked out and it allowed for a terrific mirror image to be composed.

The evening was a lot of fun and anytime my family gets to go out and camp is a terrific time. And being that she got to see this incredible landscape made me feel so good.

Not to mention my wife really knows how to cook and make some good mixed drinks. Even in the woods.

Dear author! I added this your photo to one album on my page in Russian Social Net, because I like it very much, and I wanted to share it with my Russian friends. Will you allow and forgive me for this, or should I delete this wonderful photo from the album? 
Waiting for an answer.

I don't mind as long as you would tell your friends who took the photo.  Just give me credit for the photograph and I don't mind :D  I'm glad you like it!
