On Monday, a friend and I hiked to Stanley Reservoir from the Air Force Academy. It was a beautiful hike on a perfect day. We had originally gone up to look at leaves, but it turned out that the aspens at the top had already lost all their leaves. Still, it offered some gorgeous views and a pretty lake at the top.

The dogs we brought with us trying to beat each other up:
Aren't they cute? They're the same breed as my dog in MN, so they keep me from missing him too much :)
