Southwest Colorado is an explosion of color every autumn. The largest stands of aspen in the world make this region unparalleled for stunning fall scenery, and the most famous autumn destinations in the world are found here at the base of 14,000-foot peaks. Between the golden groves, the high peaks, the crystal streams, the reflections and the possibility of early snow, there is something here for every landscape photographer. There will be times when there will literally be outstanding images in every direction. It will be up to you to choose which to shoot first.
