Fall Colors Tour

When people think about the best places in North America to view fall colors, most think of New England. I would argue that Fall in Colorado is almost a surreal experience. The mountains get their first sprinkle of snow and provide the perfect back-drop for the varicolored foliage. This coupled with beautiful lakes, streams and wildlife viewing opportunities makes it hard to beat.

We have selected our favorite spots for you such that you get several different flavors of terrains and foliage types. The highlight of the trip will be the grand finale in the San Juan mountains
