Postcard: Inside autumn’s belly

By now maybe you know: I have a thing for loitering inside an aspen grove. If I’m riding by one on my bike, I feel a tug to stop. If I’m driving by, gawking, it’s all I can do to stay on the road. I just love the peace you feel within a grove. And I always feel better about life after I visit one, like this little gem in Colorado’s upper Blue River Valley.
