Peak Season - Fall in Colorado 8

Like every other season, fall is pretty magical in the Colorado high country. By the end of summer, cool winds are already moving over the mountains and the peaks are getting dusted with snow. The aspens shed their leaves, covering the trails in red and gold, and morning frosts dampen the dry summer dirt. Add it all together, and it means several weeks of absolutely prime singletrack—sticky, colorful, and emptied of the summertime foot traffic. It was in search of those conditions that we headed into the mountains with our SB66s and a checklist of our favorite trails.

    California is the "Golden State" and CO is the "Centennial State". But there is a city in CO called Golden. Its a cool place.

    Poor grammar on my part: meant *isnt* - those Aspen man...those hills were full of gold. But, CA did have a bigger gold rush and a great coastal sunset, so it settles out. Also, Golden, CO is a cool little town for sure.
