There's river rafting in the spring, mountain hiking in the summer, and Colorado skiing in the winter. And the autumn? That's when the state's world famous aspens make all of Colorado a natural fun-fest of strikingly beautiful color.
Of course, the city named for the golden-hued beauty becomes prime viewing as Aspen's fall color lives up to it's reputation, especially in Maroon Bells, possibly the most photographed place in America.
Then there are the day trips out to the Rockies from Denver, and to Pike's Peak in Colorado Springs.
In the early fall in Colorado, the gold rush is on!
