Fall in Steamboat Springs
Once we hit Labor Day here in Steamboat Springs it is like a big switch is thrown and it is suddenly fall. I saw a large grove of golden Aspen trees right away as I started a mountain bike ride this morning with 3 friends from Dumont Lake on Rabbit Ears Pass to the Mountain View trail up the back of the Steamboat ski area and down into town. It is a little less than 30 miles with quite a bit of up and down and a big climb up the back of Storm Peak at the end.
As we came back down Cathy's on the mountain on the left side of the Sunshine chair we went through several groves of Aspens that were starting to change. It's hard to let summer go but fall is wonderful here and winter definately has it's charms. See my earlier post on Steamboat Springs seasons.
