I have explored New England for fall colors the last 12 years.. I've camped in the backcountry, in campgrounds and out of my car but I have never made my way out west for the colors until this year. The aspens in Colorado have been on my list for quite some time now. I'd really happy I had the chance to head out with a few friends of mine.
I left for Colorado in late September with above normal temperature's and warm sunny days. That quickly changed when a cold front clear the area while dumping snow in the high country. I slapped my GoPRO HERO3 on the truck for a few drives and this is one of them.
The Yankee Girl Mine was established in 1882 and used to produce gold, silver ore and copper. The mine produced an estimated $8 million dollars in it's time. Here is the drive to the top after a fresh coating of snow. The Yankee Girl Mine can be found near Ouray and Silverton, Colorado.
Thanks and hope you enjoy the video! #nofilter
