. . . I've been told that I write novels for email messages. Perhaps this is the way to go. I'll try to make each entry, or Gemstone, a "precious" one. On mediocre days, all I might be able to produce is a "semi-precious" entry. In any case, an entry might be a "neat" Gemstone--something that is uniquely mine.

Canada Bonita/Guaje Canyon Trails in Fall

A little over a month ago I went for a run along the Cañada Bonita/Guaje Canyon Trails up around Pajarito Mountain. (September 1, 2009 Blog) I went back yesterday and ran the trails again (6 miles at 9500 feet) among the beautiful trees that have now turned to their autumn colors. The aspens are shades of yellow-green, yellow, and orange, a striking contrast among the green pines. The new colors are my favorite part of fall. I definitely don't enjoy the cooler weather and shorter days so have to find pleasure in this season wherever I can find it. I recommend getting out on this trail or finding a trail yourself to enjoy the season.

For some reason this post is not posting so I will copy it in again.

It is hard to say which season is more beautiful. Do you think you will have the opportunity to get a picture when the aspens have lost their leaves and there will be snow? Of course, only if it is safe and you don't get frost bite.

I highly doubt that I'll be trying to find the same trail when it is covered in snow, but I'm sure I'll be able to get pictures of snowy landscapes. I just need to make sure I figure out how to stay warm when I do!
