Colorado is famous for it’s beautiful aspen trees. When they turn gold in the fall it’s breathtaking.  One of the things us locals love to do is take a hike to enjoy the golden leaves and cool mountain air.

This weekend my family took an afternoon hike up to Guanella Pass. For something different, take Highway 285 south out of Denver to Park County…yes, the inspiration for South Park.  Follow this to the turn off for Guanella Pass near the town of Grant.

Once you get over the pass you’ll end up near Georgetown and Interstate 70.  Stop in this little, historic town and explore or have an ice cream.  The Georgetown Loop is a great railroad that the whole family will love. Check it out!
