Posted on Tue, 27-Sep-2016Mon, 03-Oct-2016 by pamGrand Mesa National Forest A perfect fall day for a drive up the Mesa! The amount of aspen around Powderhorn Ski area was breathtaking. Quaking aspen in a light breeze, shimmery golden in the sun – actually quite a bit of orange on the leaves as well which was a bit unusual. This is real – just an amazing blue sky! A hike up Crag Crest to enjoy the view with our picnic lunch -notice a bit of snow on the trail….winter is coming. Amazing views were worth the three miles or so to the summit. Clouds were forming only over the peaks but added some interest to our views. It was great to hike amongst the colors, the views and the sunshine. A great day!
