Lower Dolores River Canyon all south of Rico.
No postings for several days.
Are the fall colors over or did old man winter come down and give the mountains a kiss?
It was super windy for awhile and the leaves were blown off the trees quite quickly.
It's mostly over up north, but a bit still remains, and its still nice.
Where is the best place to go now?
Don't know how much is left - but I'd head south, and keep northern New Mexico open as a possibility.
I'm heading out on a 10 day ride to the south in a couple days, I'll be hitting the High Road to Taos on my way to Santa Fe - for the color and also because it's a great ride.
Probably lower elevations would be better also.
Saturday starts the first "open" rifle hunting season. So worth keeping that in mind. Probably lots of crowds out there for that.
We went to creede today. You are right it's too late . We are in Gunnison for the night. Thank you for your reply.
The cottonwood trees along the Arkansas river bottom are just starting to turn in Pueblo. Not as dramatic as the mountain aspens but still nice to look at.
The leaves may be down but the beauty remains!
Not much, but still a little color on the 15th North of Cañon City.
Snow was knee deep and blowing and drifting in camp this morning. Just east of Buffalo pass. So we got out of there.
I rode a loop around the Zirkel Wilderness on Thursday and the woods were packed with folks just about everywhere I went.
I suspect that there were a lot of miserable hunters looking for alternate places to stay this weekend.
Our Search & Rescue will have tons of stories about this weekend.
A lot of the camps that I saw on Battle Pass .......... obviously WERE NOT ready for this type weather at all.
I think it was spotty. Where we were it would have been hard to get out by now. But steamboat didn’t get much. And willow creek pass didn’t either. Cold and blowing in grand lake but only maybe 4 inches here at the house.
Some Salida color, a little out of the ordinary:
On the San Luis Valley side of the Sangres.
Firefighters above the Rainbow Trail.

We had a great 2-up ride. Yeah, I'm a little late to post..... 5 weeks ago.
And you didn't even call. We probably were in Grand Lake at the same time.
Nope... but we should ride again. Its been a long time.
^^^^ Yep...…………...It's becoming snowmobile season now...……...
