Fall Color 2021

Last year, extreme drought forced peak color earlier than normal. Aspen trees were stressed and some leaves dropped early.

Take a look at the photo below from Grand Lake. It was snapped on 9/13/2021 by friend and photographer John Williams, who also has a photography shop on Main Street in Grand Lake.

Here is a rough timeline for peak color.
