Fall Color Weekend on the Grand Mesa is a great time to enjoy the bursts of gold that signal the arrival of the fall season. We decided to take a look and brought back several gold bursts in the photos below.

Fall color is back in the Mesa Lakes area. The fall temperatures are in place and the next couple of weeks will be the peak of fall colors around Mesa county.

The Aspen and Cottonwood trees have definitely started to turn golden in several places. The color will only increase over the next several days. Plan a hike, a picnic, or just drive the byway with the windows down and enjoy the show.

Appreciate the Change of the Season in Colorado

The change from summer to fall is one of my favorite times of year in Colorado. Nature is still putting on an amazing show for us if you care to go and find it. It was nice to see so many people out exploring the area around Mesa Lakes. I saw families of all ages enjoying the colors, and even saw a very pregnant hiking her way back from Lost Lake.

Park in Designated Areas Only

It's a busy time of year on the Grand Mesa. I noticed the parking lots seem full and people who want to see the colors are often parking in areas they should not be. Be sure to do your best to park in designated areas. Traffic is way up with fall activities so keep an eye out for cars and enjoy your search for fall colors. T
