Fall is such a great season. As we get some relief from the heat and the craziness of summer, fall brings us not only those crisp days and evenings perfect for hoodies and a warm cup of your favorite beverage, but also Halloween and then the excitement of Thanksgiving and Christmas,

Beauty is another thing that fall brings to us, especially here in Colorado. The changing colors on the trees all along the Front Range and opportunities to check out the colors in the higher elevations with the world famous Aspens that dot the landscape all around and through the Rocky Mountains.

These fall views that we have all around us are basically real life postcards that we can experience whether it be on a stroll through various areas of Larimer and Weld Counties or if you have a little extra time, a day trip and weekend adventure in different parts of the state.

According to Fox 31 meteorologist Chris Tomer, this year's fall foliage looks to be extra vibrant and beautiful thanks to the extra monsoon moisture we received throughout the summer.

Silverton Colorado was named to one of the best towns in the entire Untied States for fall colors by Trips To Discover, a travel site that named Silverton to its top 15 list.



Silverton is a beautiful town surrounded by the Rockies and not only can you enjoy those views right from the vibrant Downtown area and along the Million Dollar Highway which Silverton is a part of but you can check out all of the fall beauty that Colorado has to offer on the Durango-Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad.




I don't know about you but I'm ready to roll for a little road trip.
