More Colors of Autumn...Guanella Pass

These photos are from our trip over Guanella pass in September of 2008.  This is one of my very favorite drives any time of year - except winter! We usually start our drive up at Georgetown to go over the pass, coming down to meet US Highway 285 and back down to Denver.


This is the top of Guanella Pass, and it is gorgeous up here!  Looking towards the east you see Mt. Evans, Mt. Bierstadt and "The Sawtooth".  We took a short hike down to the lake, but it was pretty chilly, so we didn't stay up here too long that day. It even looks cold in the photos!

After enjoying our chilly walk at the summit of the pass, we continued our drive down to 285 and back home ~ 

There are even some pretty reds to enjoy!


  1. These are the kinds of pictures that made me cry when we lived in SC. So glad we're back- thanks for sharing these! :)

  2. I'm very happy they don't make you sad anymore! :)
