It is that time of year again, FALL. My favorite season! We took the Guanella Pass scenic drive today. We discovered a surprise along this beautiful scenic byway. I truly didn’t realize that AUTUMN was here. It is hard to tell in the city. But, tucked away along the windy road that leads up to the Guanella Pass Summit is a hidden treasure. Aspen trees line the winding road. Bright yellow pops appear out of nowhere. So many Aspen trees gleaming with yellow dance along the road. If you are lucky you can catch a glimpse of Aspens that actually look orange. Along the green mountainsides, tucked quietly and almost secretively are the quintessential Aspens that truly define a Colorado Autumn. Fall in Colorado is a little bit different than let’s say Fall in the Northeast. The Rocky Mountains display an unimaginable beauty during the Fall. The sweet golden yellow that subtly protrudes through the massive green forests is breathtaking. Beautiful Aspens line pathways and lead visitors to tranquility. The air is crisp and quiet.Even the sky seems happier peering down on the beautiful Aspen trees.Tall, thin, and statuesque, Apsen trees stand with authority.
Winter will come quickly in Colorado. Now is the time to load the car and take a road trip to see the beautiful Aspen trees in all of their glory. I suggest taking the Guanella Pass scenic byway. There are lots of places to pull the car over and take breathtaking pictures.Past posts about Guanella Pass and Colorado Fall foliage:
