Fall is here and the bright colors of yellow and orange are making it's appearance around the Vail Valley. We even had our first dusting of snow on top of Vail Mountain on Monday, which means excitement for the upcoming ski season.
Plan a scenic drive this weekend to enjoy the fall colors as they will probably be peaking this weekend. Here are some scenic drives you may want consider:
Battle Mountain and Tennessee Pass: Take I 70 to Highway 24 through Minturn and head south along the scenic byway. I have always thought this is one of the prettiest drives to enjoy the brilliant shades of gold and orange with a splash of red.
