Fall is a very special season to enjoy the Rocky Mountains in Colorado. Aspens, cottonwoods and willows turn golden-yellow, sometimes covering the base of snow-dusted peaks. The peak color change varies with elevation and usually emerges from late September in the high peaks to mid/late-October in the lower elevations. We advise 'leaf-peepers' to arrive earlier than the conference dates to enjoy the annual autumn display. That said, there are many places to explore year-round. A few suggestions are noted below.
... AND BEYOND
There are many places to explore than those suggested above. If you're taking more days off to explore, heading further west to Crystal Mill, Palisade, The Grand Mesa and Colorado Nat'l Monument will be sure to astound. Please do not hesitate to contact the local organizers for advice!
