What's the secret to chasing golden Aspens?
Chasing golden Aspens???
In other words, it's called leaf peeping or viewing the fall foliage, but since (as I learned last week during my trip out to ColRADo!) Aspen trees grow in groves and the the trees change colors at different times depending on the altitude they grow at, it's more like a hunt + chase to find Aspens that are at their peak golden color.
For example, I first arrived in the mountains in Colorado via Independence Pass and Aspen (altitude 8,000 feet), but the Aspens were only just starting to turn gold there. Womp womp. Let me tell ya, I thought I was gonna get skunked on my leaf peeping vacation! Feeling a little frustrated, I hopped back in the car, drove another 2.5 hours to a higher altitude in Breckenridge (altitude 9,600 feet), and then the gold, oh the gollllddddden Aspens!!!
Golden just like this...
So the secret? If the Aspens are quite changing color yet, go chase some Aspens at another location that is a higher altitude!

What’s the weather like in Costa Rica you ask?
Well, that all depends on where in Costa Rica you are. In fact, Did you know that even though Costa Rica is the size of West Virginia or Denmark, it has 20 microclimates?

Sometimes you just need a little help from a friend. Especially while picking out artwork to hang in your home or to gift a loved one.
So if you’re stumped on which print from The Sunset Shop you’d like to gift next week for Val/Galentine’s Day(or to gift to yourself!), say hola to your new design friend - me(!) - and my new virtual design sessions!
