    Colorado fall colors - the Colorado trail

    Had a chance to ride a great section of the CO trail this week - fall colors were amazing on a beautiful CO day. Rode from Kenosha pass (10,000') to Georgia pass (11,585') - just over 24 mi. of prime, high-country singletrack. This was my first ride w/ a camera, so I thought I'd try my hand at snapping and posting a few pics.



    Bike at trailhead



    A few trail shots




    Trees starting to get thin ... so is the air



    At the top of Georgia pass with a view of Mt. Gugot (13,370') - above timberline now



    After a tough climb at altitude, the downhill was a well-earned singletrack blast through pine forrest mixed with aspen groves. Only stopped for a few pics as I was having way too much fun.






    It's always fun to get up to the high country in the fall when the aspen are changing colors. I was fortunate to catch the trees at peak on such a beautiful day. The trees were electric in the afternoon sun - as a newbie photog, I'm afraid my shots don't do it justice. Nonetheless, a great ride on a great day.

    I live in the Colorado high country the other eleven months, just so I can live here in September. Nice shots. They don't begin to show the beauty of the season, but no photographs can. Well done.
    Your fear of looking stupid is holding you back.

    That is a fun ride. Your photos look great. Favorite time of the year for me.

    p.s. Does the 7 in your user ID indicate that you are 7' tall? That looks like a big bike!

    sgltrak, LMAO. If only you knew. You are spot on w/ the 7' tall comment. Jake won't tell you this however.... cheers. NEON

    Jake, great pics. I'd like to get a copy of one for my father-in-law. Better yet, I'll go take my own!
