Fall In Colorado - Aspen Groves and Fall Foliage

Fall Foliage Videos

September 24, 2011 - Today I spent a few hours autumn leaf peeping in Chalk Creek Canyon, a scenic area in the Sawatch Range of the Colorado Rocky Mountains.

Although I did capture a few semi-decent photos, I think these five videos probably capture the fall scenery the best. Aspen grove after aspen grove in this canyon were so bright and beautiful! For those interested in visiting, Chalk Creek Canyon links the small towns of Nathrop and St. Elmo. Directions are simple: From Nathrop, travel west on Chaffee County Road 162 into the canyon.

Large and mature aspens, many of them with yellow leaves.
Plenty of fall colors on the roadside. This is a scenic and mountainous area worthy of a visit no matter what the season.

I think this particular aspen grove, with the light making those aspen leaves shimmer, is my favorite.

Thanks for watching!

Colorado Fall Leaves

The lighting was terrible for photography, but here are four autumn photos that I thought were presentable.

The touch of orange and red in those leaves make it a winner!
