Here are two taken on Highway 9 near Hartsel on 10/2. I was amazed at the variety of colors this year. These pics are not color enhanced or edited in any way (I don't know how...... :oops: )

I noticed that too. We went up Shavano from the Angel TH, so we had those first two miles on the Colorado Trail, a lot of it through the aspens... a ton of them were ORANGE this year, not the normal yellow/gold. No idea why. Really neat.

I need to get a job somewhere on your drive. All I get to see are cops, broken down cars and a homeless people begging for change.

This was driving out of the Huerfano River drainage on Friday, 07 October, 2011 after climbing California Peak. I was surprised to see so many aspens still in "green" this late.
