Colorado in the fall, it doesn’t get much better! A few weeks ago I went up to Guanella Pass to check out all the colors, and it didn’t disappoint. From the town of Grant along U.S. Hwy. 285, head north on Guanella Pass Road to the town of Georgetown. The paved road leads you over 11,669-foot Guanella Pass with its stunning views of Mount Evans and Mount Bierstadt. Once you’ve soaked in all the scenery, stop off for a bite to eat and some local shopping in downtown Georgetown.

Ready to go? Keep in mind Colorado leaves turn at different times depending on elevation and the length of daylight, so be sure to check the Smoky Mountains website for interactive maps showing the best spots. Now lace up your hiking shoes and get ready to see some of the most beautiful views of the Rocky Mountains.
