Colorful quaking aspen, plus GRAND Social No. 124 link party

Colorful quaking aspen

In Colorado, we don't have a huge variety of trees changing color come fall. We do have the aspen trees — often called quaking aspen — though. Their magnificent autumn show of color would put to shame any other trees, which just may be why aspens are the primary deciduous trees on the mountainsides, alongside the majestic Blue Spruce and other pines.

The orange, red and yellow of the aspens are surely part of the reason my state carries the tagline, "Colorful Colorado." Below is one of the most fabulous views of those colors, courtesy a drone — proof drones can be a good thing. (Upon clicking play on the video, be sure to adjust the resolution to the 4K setting by changing the "quality" via the little wheel on the bottom right of the YouTube screen.)


Magnificent, right? I love autumn in Colorado!

GRAND Social No. 124

Welcome once again to THE link party for grandparents! If this is your first time joining us, the "directions" are below; if you've been here before, you know just what to do. Thank you all for supporting your fellow grandparents!


grand social link party

How it works:

  • All grandparent bloggers are invited to add a link. You don't have to blog about grandparenting, just be a grandparent who blogs.
  • To link up a post, copy the direct URL to the specific post — new or old — that you want to share, not the link to your blog's home page. Then click the blue button below marked "Add your link" and follow the directions.
  • You can add up to three posts, but no duplicates, contests, giveaways, or Etsy sites, please.
  • Adding a mention such as This post linked to the GRAND Social to your linked posts is appreciated. Or, you can post the GRAND Social button anywhere on your page using the following code:
<a rel="nofollow" href="/" target="blank"><img src="" alt="Grandma’" width="125" height="125" /></a>
  • The GRAND Social linky accepts posts through Wednesday evening, so please come back to see those added after your first visit.

  • If you're not a blogger, you have the pleasure of being a reader. Those sharing a link would be honored to have you visit, read and, if so moved, leave a comment even if just "Hey, stopping by from the GRAND Social." Bloggers who link are encouraged to visit and comment on the links of other bloggers, as well.
