Best Aspen Colors in the country

The Aspen this year were the most colorful in many years. The trip over Ohio pass into Kebler was spectacular as well.

Kebler Pass regularly gets touted as the best Fall color drive in all of Colorado, but until this year I've never had a chance to make the drive. We certainly got lucky this year. Sandwiched between two work trips, our only option was to go to Kebler Pass a week earlier than we normally drive to see the gorgeous Colorado... More

It's closed in the winter months so I felt lucky to make it in October. It's an amazing drive through the mountains, fantastic foliage.

Beautiful side trip, fairly easy drive from downtown CB. The aspens were golden and singing a fall chorus...

We missed the foliage last year and we planned our trip more carefully this year. Maroon Bells is famous but Kebler Pass is a feast for the eyes!!! for miles. The road is partly unpaved but very smooth. If you are in the area do not miss it, or plan to drive thru next time you are in Colorado.

It tends to get crowded with tourists when the colors change. It's a beautiful drive if you're not wanting to hike.

Kebler Pass is my new go to for viewing fall colors! I could have asked for a more perfect day! This is a must even in the summer!

Even though it was snowing hard on September 24th this pass is very beautiful well worth the mud splattered drive.

A beautiful drive over the pass in the fall when the aspens are changing colors! Lots of photo ops along the way. As there was road construction just 6 miles before reaching Crested Butte, we opted for a detour down Ohio Pass along Ohio Creek Road and found it to be a rougher/narrower road, but still a very beautiful drive!

Came in late September and the Aspen were gorgeous. Road construction in the area was disrupting, but the views were great.
