Colorado’s favorite annual autumn show is getting good reviews even before it opens.
The aspen leaves are beginning to change color.
The late moisture we have received lately has delayed the change of colors and should make it a spectacular year, says Clare Sinacori, spokeswoman for Colorado State Parks.
But don’t get impatient. “We are pretty darn green, still,” Kyle Patterson of Rocky Mountain National Park told the Greeley Tribune. “There is a little tiny bit of color changing at higher elevations, but it’s not really noticeable yet.”
Next week should be the start of the good viewing with the peak following closely thereafter.
That’s of course if wind doesn’t blown them off, or snow cover them.
