August Ahhhh, the dog-days of summer and so many places to cool off in Colorado! Head to Crestone for their annual Music Festival. The Grand Heritage Bike Tour on "Back-roads & Byways" is a multi-day bicycle tour leaving from Kremmling and finishing in Winter Park. The Cumbres and Toltec Scenic Railroad does a Wildflower/Botany Train on August 4th and a Sunset Train Ride on August 17th. On August 30th the Leadville CO & Southern Railroad Co offers a Night Ride with a BBQ dinner. The North Fork Valley has several events this month including: 10th Annual West Elks Wine Trail, 114th Annual Delta County Fair and Rodeo, and the 4th Annual Farm to Fiddle weekend. John Martin Reservoir State Park will soon see the Piping Plover and Interior Least Tern nest birds finishing their summer vacation here in Colorado.
There's no better time than September to pick your favorite Scenic Byway and watch the seasons change from Summer to Fall. Colorado's Fall colors usually peak from Mid-September through Late-October. As the nighttime temperatures start to drop down to 30 degrees, our native trees like the quaking aspen and plains cottonwood start the processes of turning their leaves gold, orange, red and purple. Gear up for the 8th Annual Pedal The Plains multi-day bike ride September 13-15 that loops around Lamar, Holly, and Springfield, Colorado.
Helpful Hint: Altitude Awareness - Please be smart before heading into our high country. Take it easy your first 24 hours to get acclimated, stay hydrated - water is your friend, limit soda and alcohol, wear sunglasses and use sun screen. Remember your pets deserve the same care.
