Mid September through mid October is usually prime time leaf season for Colorado but this year leaf season is here early. Due to a low snowfall year and a dry summer the season has been slightly altered. A few days ago Breckenridge and a few other peaks were lucky enough to see some snow alongside the yellowing aspens. Hopefully the early foliage and snow are signs for a good winter to follow!

But while it does last the fall season is one of the most peaceful and quiet times to be in Summit County. Plus, its a great way to see the sights without having to deal with all the winter and summer crowds.
