Autumn Pictures

Trees Fall Leaves


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. :)

Bright Fall Colors The very beginning of the Denny Creek Trail, which leads hikers to Mount Yale.

The red foliage close to the grounds makes this picture spectacular!

Fall Leaves A little blurry, but any orange foliage in this region is special.

Fall Foliage Tour 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! :)

Bright yellow leaves everywhere. Fall in Colorado is a special season.
