Colorado Aspen Mountain Hiking Autumn Fall TrailTouring the backcountry of Colorado is always a pleasure, especially if you get to experience it in a place as beautiful as Independence Pass.

Getting outside, camping, hiking and enjoying the outdoors with friends is definitely, what I consider, the icing on the cake for this part of North America

But in the Autumn, while the colors are flourishing particularly brighter than they do any other time of year, is when you get the best of the best when in search for the best Fall foliage in this part of the world.

You can virtually find any shade of red, yellow, orange, brown & just about all other colors under the sun. Not only that, but this also happens to be the time when most people are either at work or in school; allowing you to fully enjoy your time outdoors. 

Taking an afternoon away from the blogosphere, hike with me as I tour the backcountry of Aspen, Colorado in today’s Fall Foliage Tour Photo Essay!
