The whisper of aspen leaves, the myriad of colors - it must be fall in the San Juan Mountains!

As summer winds down and the temperatures begin to cool, the leaves begin to show hues of orange, reds and yellows.  With hillsides filled with color and a variety of  trails that offer incredible images of the fall foliage, a trip to Pagosa to view the leaves changing is a welcome retreat.

Insider Tip: The hike to Opal Lake in the fall is a favorite of many, locals and visitors alike!
