ColorFALL Colorado – An Afternoon on Guanella Pass

If you’ve ever visited Colorado, you know that the welcome sign says “Welcome to Colorful Colorado!”  Well, when the aspen trees turn gold in the fall it’s breathtaking!

This weekend my family took an afternoon hike up to Guanella Pass. For something different, take Highway 285 south out of Denver to Park County…yes, the inspiration for South Park.  Follow this to the turn off for Guanella Pass near the town of Grant.

Once you get over the pass you’ll end up near Georgetown and Interstate 70.  Stop in this little, historic town and explore or have an ice cream.  The Georgetown Loop is a great railroad that the whole family will love. Check it out!
