If you haven't had a chance to hit the Grand Mesa to check out the fall colors, you're going to want to make the trip soon!

The Grand Mesa celebrated its color Sunday this past weekend filling the surrounding countryside with bright golds as the aspen stands transform into their winter-selves.

Highway 65 was lined with cars, tourist, and gawkers snapping photos for a permanent reminder winter is on its way -- yes, I was one of the gawkers.

Enjoy some of the photos from the Grand Mesa -- they're not even close to seeing them in real life.
