Today’s One Word Wednesday is COLOR.

Julie Andrews sang about the hills of Austria being alive with the Sound of Music.

???????????????????????????????This fall the hills and mountains of Western Colorado are alive with color. Streams of yellow flow down the mountain sides like veins of gold. ???????????????????????????????

My husband and I loaded up a picnic lunch and our two four-legged boys and headed out for a day trip of leaf viewing.

We always did the same day trips every fall when we lived in Connecticut to see the canvas of color on those hills.

On this trip, the rich yellows and reds and oranges and all shades in between were so vibrant that it almost hurt our eyes to look.

After our little excursion, I have to agree with Poet Leigh Hunt.colors quote
