Default Fall in Colorado. Leaves are changing I hear.

Anyone care to list where there are good places to look at the leaves. Obviously, as time progresses it's going to move around.

Do a search on the forum for "leaf peeping". Several threads.

One of my favorite rides is Boreas Pass. It is close to Denver. Also for those that don't have a wheeling truck it is passable in a car.

Agreed. Also, north of Saguache is pretty awesome, and quiet.

The Aspens will peak over the next week or so up by me on Dumont I think. It's pretty spectacular right now. Not that I'm ready for winter, but nobody asked me.

Boreas Pass looks to be pretty great this weekend, according to Instagram. I just got back from Mammoth Gulch and the Rollinsville / Peak to Peak area - around 50% yellow and orange, definitely worth a trip tomorrow if you've got time. West side of Rollinsville Pass is likely pretty awesome right now as well.

Next week might be peak already for Kebler Pass near Crested Butte (usually more toward first weekend in October). After that head up to the Flat Tops near Steamboat, or down to Ridgeway and Telluride. Grand Mesa also looks to have some fantastic color, too, but I haven't made it out there myself yet.

Stillwater Pass and surrounding areas are pretty good. Here's apic I captured last year on still water

Here's north of Dumont today. Yankee hill is that direction.
