Fans of fall are headed to the high country, getting out to see all the leaves as they change colors.
This is a busy time of year for mountains in Colorado.
There are festivals all weekend long, leading up to Color Sunday.
Despite the hot, dry summer that Western Colorado just passed through, the fall leaves are here.
The evidence is in the vibrant colors covering the Grand Mesa.
When you see them from a distance you can be sure there are people out an about, taking in the beauty.
For Robert Eichel and his buddies, playing disk golf at Powderhorn Resort is the perfect way to spend the weekend.
"So far it’s going pretty well.” Eichel said. “I’m two strokes down but that's alright. We still have five courses left so I’m feeling pretty good."
While they're having a good time and focusing on the tournament, they're also taking in the scenery.
"I just love the colors, just the way the weather is,” Anthony Delgado said. “It’s just beautiful outside.”
On Saturday Adam Stichter made a special trip to the Grand Mesa for the passing scenery.
It’s the brilliant fall foliage that draws him outdoors this time of year.
"I moved to Colorado about four years ago and started this tradition three years ago," Stichter said.
Powderhorn is celebrating the colors all weekend, not just on Sunday. It says we are fortunate to have this beauty even if it’s just for a season.
