Autumn in the Rockies is a gorgeous time of year. When the aspen trees are showing off their fall colors, it’s kind of like someone took buckets of yellow, orange and red paint and splashed them down the mountainsides.
Starting the morning in a cabin just south of Crested Butte, we ventured north of town into the high country.
A popular area for mountain bikers, we happily shared the road.
The rugged Rocky Mountain peaks in the area provide spectacular views!
After a day in the mountains, the Victorian town of Crested Butte offers lots of ways to relax which might be as simple as sitting on a rustic old wooden bench and people watching.
