First to Review

Colorado is a land of extremely varied landscapes. One of the most surprising drives that you can take is route 285 through Pike forest northwest of Colorado Springs. The road climbs through deciduous forest into pines and small towns lining the narrow defile of the mountain valleys. Just after the peak you turn and bend all of a sudden you're confronted with a strange site--miles and miles of wide open and flat ranch land.

The best time to do this drive is in September when the aspen forests all turn bright gold at the same time. Aspen groves tend to be clones of the same tree so they turn all at once and then the leaves fall a week later.
