High-country splendor of Color Sundays

the Aspen are turning on GM-



So you have the car loaded up with jackets and snacks. Binoculars are in hand, as is a fully charged battery for the camera. You’re ready to make the drive over Grand Mesa to witness the fall fashion show of Mother Nature.

Do you need a program for the models that are participating — the trees, shrubs and bushes that will don an array of yellows and oranges and reds, which never go out of style?

For the first of two Color Sundays today, we’ve prepared a field guide for you, with the help of Christie La Due, a forester with the Grand Mesa, Uncompahgre and Gunnison National Forests, so you know what you’re looking at. We’ve also included a list of events on and near the mesa.
