FALL COLOR IN COLORADO September 23,2015
Last Wednesday, I took to the high country to check out the color change. This would be to the east of Montrose and up a Forest Service road just beyond Cimarron, CO. From here you go back into the mountains and soak up the fresh air and fall color.
I was a bit early, but there was more than enough color change to go around. This is but one image of several dozen which I took home with me. From our place along the Uncompahgre Plateau, this is a circular loop of about ninety miles and that makes for a real nice day's outing. Lots of time for photography and other outdoor activities.
The height of color in the high country is supposed to be today, but I plan to go out again tomorrow when the mass of humanity have returned to their more normal routines. I dislike crowds and dust so I will always opt for a time when the masses are thin or nonexistent.
Today is sunny and nice with a beautiful sky of mixed clouds. It's a great time of year to be out and about.
