September 29, 2011 - If you are seeking a great fall foliage tour in Colorado,
I recommend the canyon
west of Buena Vista that leads to Cottonwood Pass. This year, most of my autumn
photos have been taken in this scenic mountain area.
Today I ventured out once again, and I think my video work is improving. Above is four
minutes of me walking through a
colorful fall wonderland.
Eventually I reached Denny Creek, a high elevation creek that begins on the
Continental Divide a few miles uphill.
An area of golden aspen leaves off the main road, Chaffee County Road 306.
That's an avalanche shoot along Chaffee County Road 306. Look at all those trees with yellow and orange leaves. :)
The very beginning of the Denny Creek Trail, which leads hikers to
The red foliage close to the grounds makes this picture spectacular!
More bright yellow aspen leaves.
A little blurry, but any orange foliage in this region is special.
Looking up at those bright aspens.
Another great spot for fall foliage viewing is Chaffee County Road 344,
which leads to Cottonwood Lake.
The autumn leaves are not quite at their peak in this spot ... I'll be back! :)
Plenty of fall color next to the creek.
Bright yellow leaves everywhere. Fall in Colorado is a special season.
