| p.1 #20 · Colorado Fall Color Reports |
Despite the recent flooding I'd still like to be able to get out to the Aspen area for fall shooting if possible. Anyone know if the roads from Boulder to I-70 are accessible - i.e., Highway 93?
The fall colors seem to be turning especially late this year for CO in general. Usually there's more this time of year even at Boulder elevation. I'm starting to think the weekend of 10/4 might probably have a good amount of color in the mountains still....
Btw, for those not aware of the flooding there's more info here: http://www.fredmiranda.com/forum/topic/1241314
And the Rocky Mountain National Park Web site confirms that it's closed until further notice for recreational use, so anyone thinking about heading there for photography should be advised that you'll probably be forced to turn around. And given the timing of the flooding, I wouldn't be surprised if RMNP is closed until summer next year, if not longer, because Trail Ridge Road typically closes by the end of October due to snow, and snow will only impede progress of rebuilding roads.
The thought of RMNP potentially being closed for the entire upcoming winter really bums me out, as I was really looking forward to snowshoeing & winter photography there.....
What areas fall under 'Front Range'. Thanks
The Front Range extends from Fort Collins to the north to as far as Colorado Springs to the south and includes Loveland, Lyons, Longmont, Boulder, Louisville, Broomfield, Denver & suburbs, and Castle Rock. There are a number of towns in the foothills as well that were heavily affected like Allenspark, Ward, Nederland, and Evergreen/Genesee. Estes Park as well but not sure it counts as part of the Front Range due to its proximity to the Divide.
For the out-of-state photogs who plan on fall shooting in CO, it's probably a better idea to approach CO from the west.
