Colorado Weather: 3 days of Wind has ended a beautifully long leaf color-changing season.
As Colorado weather changes from summer to fall we are gifted some beautiful color palettes. What is great about this transition is that it lasts a very long time. We have most of September where views of the aspens and many other types of trees of the Colorado mountains surround the highways or if you are lucky enough to get off of the beaten path they can surround you. This photo is from a trip last month.
We also have a long transformation from the foothills to the East side of Denver and all along the front range, because of the altitude change. This year it was longer than most. The Colorado weather has been very nice to us thus far, we have yet to have our first snow and really haven't even hit freezing yet here in Denver. But up in the mountains they are getting great snow, which of course is great for the ski slopes.
I have lived here most of my life and I can't remember when Colorado weather has left my favorite holiday, Halloween, unscathed from some sort of storm. We got our first storm a couple of days ago, where we along with the rest of the country had tremendous winds. These winds took a majority of our last orange, red, auburn, and bright yellow leaves off of the trees.
I am excited though, it looks like we are going to have a beautiful Colorado weather weekend with highs in the 70's for our trick or treating and fun Halloween festivities.
