Default Fall Colors Run... open to suggestions.

Howdy everyone-

Stacy and I have been talking about getting up for a full day of seeing the fall colors. We have plans of a picnic, and senic drives, nothing too hardcore, but a challenge would be a fun side benifit, but not the main reason for going.

So, I have two questions:

Where would you recommend going?

Who would want to tag along?

I am thinking running in a week or two, or will we start to miss out on the colors?

Thanks-

Drew

Drew, I would be up for something. I'll start looking to what areas would be best. Think i'm going to head to the cabin tonight. Darren's site, has some good info on fall drives... Argentine might be a good one, as there are a lot of aspens lower in the valley. Aspen ridge was another I always wanted to do this time of year..

Thanks Guys, Matt sounds great if you want to come, anyone can!

What works for everyone, I was thinking in two weekends, maybe an overnight camp out on friday and then some senic trails on Saturday the 30th, would that be too late?

Boreas Pass Road, sounds cool where is that one?

Perry let me know what you think. I would love to get back up towards Aspen where the Ghost town run was. Let me know what you think is best, you know far more than I do about the trails around here.

Drew

Boreas is over by Breckenridge/South Park, not a hard trail just a dirt road but good Aspens. I agree with Perry Argentine might be fun esp. with the powerline trail on the way down!

Aspen was down by the TBP, not the Ghost Town run Drew Leadville was by the Ghost Town run

Might be up for this one if I have the $$ for fuel

We are planning to get out for a overnight next week end. Long range weather forecast looks more favorable than this weekend's (no snow slightly higher temps.) Looks like next weekend colors will be at or slightly past peak. We're thinking. Boreas Pass, Deer Creek, Radical Hill area.

What about Twin Cone peaks? Seem to remember there being a lot of aspens at the start. Dont know about camping other than the Forest Service on across the highway......
