There is a small window in the Colorado high country when the trail conditions are perfect. Some would call it fall, but nature is fickle here. Often the warm days of summer push up against the sting of winter. In the high country, cold winds blow and snow dusts the peaks. Lower in the valley, aspen drop their leaves and cover the trails in a vibrant carpet of red, gold, and orange.

Have a look at what they found.
