Fall Colors in Colorado
Fall Colors in Colorado are always stunning. But this year seemed particularly amazing. And seeing it all from my motorcycle was just about perfect. The most amazing fall colors also seem to have the best twisty roads for riding. I’m feeling a little spoiled these days.
The best place I stayed was the Wanderlust Hostal in Gunnison. Super chill and a nice mix of international visitors. Met a dude from Spain that had bought a motorcycle in Boston and was riding to LA. And had a great chat with a lady who was semi-retired and “photographing the West” as she put it. I wish hostels were as prevalent in the States as they are in Europe. It’s just a great way to meet people and, of course, much more affordable than a hotel.
My favorite motorcycle road was the Blue Mesa section of the west Elk Scenic Byway. Twenty five miles of twisty roads through stunning aspen groves. Aspen leaves swirling down on me. And almost no traffic. Heaven.
The best part of the trip was definitely seeing my amazing daughter at my last stop in Craig, Co. As awesome as the trip was, nothing else came close.
