Grand Mesa Fall Colors

Fall Colors | Wednesday, September 21, 2016

Skyway Point
The fall colors were pretty amazing from Skyway Point on the Grand Mesa.

I made a last minute decision after work today and went for a drive up onto the Grand Mesa to check on the fall colors this evening. It turned out to be a good call since the colors were looking pretty good. I slowly made my way up the Grand Mesa Scenic Byway to Skyway Point and then explored the old Grand Mesa Road and a few other backroads in the area while I was up there until after sunset. There’s not really much else to say about this short evening excursion, so here’s a few photos that tell the story for me.

The colors around the Mesa Creek Trail were looking good so I spent a little time hiking around the area.
