Fall Foliage in Telluride – The Gold Season

Thu Sep. 04, 2014

As festival season comes to a close, the colors of Fall provide a show of their own! The many aspen groves throughout the San Juan Mountains transform from a vibrant green to brilliant yellows and gold. Find variations of color as you tour the scenic San Juan Skyway. Typically, Fall colors starts in mid to late-September and last for a couple of
weeks.  This makes for some phenomenal hiking as well as picturesque scenery every way you turn. My favorite place to check out the colors is throughout the Lizard Head Wilderness.  It is beyond spectacular!  Fall is truly a favorite time of year for locals! Plus we know ski season is just around the corner…84 days to be exact!
