Dunckley Pass.  I used to think that a bright blue sky and lots of sunshine was the ideal setting for taking photos,  but I may have to rethink that.  The day was absolutely gorgeous but I think there was so much light it was hard to really capture all of the magnificent color.  This route, Flat Tops Trail Scenic Byway will take you across Dunckley Pass and it is beautiful!  But don't take my word for it, put this drive on your "do now" list and experience it for yourself,  I promise you will be glad you did.πŸ’›πŸ§‘

This was up on the Grand Mesa going towards Land's End Observatory.  We passed by this mini grove of Aspens and the sun was dancing back and forth behind the clouds.  It was the perfect place to take a Colorado true fall foliage photo!πŸ’›πŸ§‘

Flat Tops Trail Scenic Byway.  This is definitely an iconic Colorado fall photo.  Bluebird sky and bright golden Aspen leaves.  I took this September 15, 2018. I am enjoying seeing all of the fall foliage photos, thank you for tagging your photos #lovelivingincolorado πŸ’›πŸ§‘πŸ’›πŸ§‘

This road reminds me of Lombard Street in San Francisco.  The view of this road is from Land's End Observatory up on the Grand Mesa.  If you take it down it will take you to Hwy 50.  BTW, just a little piece of advice, if you have to use the bathroom up on the Mesa, I would highly suggest NOT using the ones at Land's End.  I won't go into detail but take my word for it.  Use the restrooms at the Visitor's Center,  they flush.  Also, the Grand Mesa is a pack it in, pack it out forest, so please remember to leave no trace! πŸ‘πŸ˜Š

After yesterday's car drama and a ride home from the very kind Palisade police department (sounds weird saying that) we decided to stay local and head to the Grand Mesa.  If you have followed @lovelivingincolorado for a while you know that I πŸ’™ the Grand Mesa.  Well today was no different.  The fall foliage was out of this world spectacular.  I had a feeling it was going to be beautiful because as we headed out of the town of Mesa (yep there is a Mesa, Colorado) I could see the colors protruding out of the mountain.  I knew right then, that today would be a good leaf peeping day.  Hope everyone had a safe and adventurous weekend!β€πŸ§‘πŸ’›πŸ’™

Completely unfiltered, no edits.  This is how beautiful and bold the oranges were on yesterday's drive.  This is Flat Tops Trail Scenic Byway and this was taken up near Dunckley Pass.  The sun was so bright yesterday and there were no clouds that it was actually a challenge to capture all of the robust colors.  So for this photo, I got all up in this Aspen's business. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ‘πŸ‘The colors were simply stunning, it felt like fall. 🧑🧑🧑🧑

Flat Tops Trail Scenic Byway.  Today was a beautiful day.  The fall foliage was on display and all seemed right in the world.  But, I feel that I should be honest.  We didn't get home to GJ until a little after 2 am.  Normally we get home late after a day of exploring but today was exceptionally late.  After we left Yampa and headed to Wolcott to catch I-70, around New Castle our car starting acting up.  We barely made it off the freeway and into a gas station before our car died.  Called our insurance and we had 2 options, spend  two hundred and whatever to be towed back to GJ, or get towed to the Walmart in Rifle for eighteen dollars and change and buy a battery.  We chose Rifle.  Changed out the battery and prayed we would make it home, or at least through Debeque Canyon w/o the car dying.  Barely made it to Palisade and the car died again.  Nice guy at the gas station helped us tighten up the battery.  Oh forgot to mention, all the way back in New Castle,  both phones died.  No way to charge.  We are doing all of this w/o cell phones (we used the land line at the gas station). Still in Palisade car dies again, it miraculously starts, we drive it, dies again, a nice stranger gives us a jump, it dies again, and the very kind Palisade police officers give us a ride home.  We were literally about 2 miles from home at that point.  If you have read all of this thank you, and  a huge thank you to all of the kind people who helped us get home.  I have decided that life can be horribly messy and sometimes it's nice to let others know the imperfection behind the photo.

If I could give a piece of unsolicited advice, Google Colorado Scenic Byways.  Today I told my husband I wanted to leaf peep somewhere new.  So we headed to the Flat Tops Trail Scenic Byway, (we started in Meeker). Now we have been on this route to Trapper's Lake but never the whole scenic byway, which led us to Yampa.  I had a feeling this route would be gorgeous.  However, I should stress it was jaw-dropping beautiful.  I took so many pictures that I am going to have clean out my gallery soon.  This photo is just one of the phenomenal views along the byway.  In this photo you can see a little bit of Vaughan Lake.  The foliage was on point.  Lots of yellow but orange and red were very abundant as well. πŸ’›πŸ§‘β€
