Sarah and I headed up to Pajarito for a quick mountain bike ride. We were looking for an excuse to indulge in the fall colors, and we managed to convince Phil to join us.
I love this time of year. It's too bad that a photograph cannot capture the scent of fall as well.
lots of color on Pipeline
We ascended the jeep roads in an effort to save time. While this route isn't nearly as enjoyable as the single track climbing, at least it gave us great views of the aspens from the clearings.

The views from the top were rewarding, to say the least.
