Fall Colors In The Colorado Rocky Mountains

The fall colors season in Colorado ...
Mt. Yale Colorado
September 16, 2012 - This morning I drove on Chaffee County Road 306, a scenic road that travels west from Buena Vista and into the Sawatch Range. Although the fall foliage is not at its peak, as of mid-September, autumn lovers won't be disappointed to travel in the high elevation areas of the mountains. Above is a stunning photo of Mount Yale from the road. So pretty!

Golden Aspen Leaves

There's something magical about standing in an aspen grove when its golden yellow.

I invite you to visit my main directory with all of my fall foliage photos over the years.
