Colorado Fall Colors

Every autumn, Colorado’s high country bears witness to one of Mother Nature’s most stunning displays. As the days shorten and the weather turns cold, entire mountains of aspen trees, as if on queue, simultaneously turn to a stunning yellow color before they before they fall to the ground.

Peak fall colors sometimes only last for a week or two. However in this short period of time in late September or early October, the mountains seem electric with color, as entire hillsides change to bright yellows and reds, accented by swaths of evergreens, all beneath the bright blue Colorado sky.

Pangaea paid a visit during peak colors to the historic Tennessee Pass and the mining ruins of Mosquito Pass, the highest mountain pass in North America. We took both the Bio Bonatti Defender 110 and the Jeep Liberty CRD for a drive among the ruins of historic Camp Hale, the World War II training camp to the illustrious 10th Mountain Division.
