Fall Colors in the San Juan Mountains
One of the many benefits of living in Colorado is experiencing the fall colors of the golden aspens. While Silverthorne and Summit County offer breathtaking views at this time of the year, the San Juan mountains in southwestern Colorado will blow your socks off!
With my wife Beth, friend Matt Shetzer and his Jeep Wrangler-Rubicon, we traveled the many jeep roads in the Ridgway, Ouray, Ophir area of southwestern Colorado at the peak of the fall foliage colors. Some roads were so rough with steep embankments that they brought an extra level of excitement and appreciation to the majestic views that we encountered.

Hope that you enjoy.
