Seeing the San Juans in Color

We recently made it to the San Juan mountains in Colorado to see the Fall colors. It has to be one of the most beautiful places for this.

I’ve always been in love with the San Juan Mountains, since the first day I drove across Colorado and they proudly stood on the horizon. These are snow capped into early summer, but the lower elevations offer a relatively mild climate for being so close to such amazing mountains. 

There was ever color you dream of – reds, yellows, oranges, and some greens. 

As always, when we visit southwest Colorado, we stop at our favorite small cafe for coffee, made-with-care sandwhiches, and a bit of local chatting. 

Yet another amazing time in southwest Colorado – one of the most beautiful parts of this country! See it in the fall for amazing colors, snowy mountain tops, and less people.
