COLORADO, USA — Fall is here, and one of the best ways to enjoy its splendor is to take a drive through Colorado's mountains.

The leaves in northern Colorado typically peak the earliest, and this year, that could be during the last days of September. In 2022, many trees may lose their leaves a few days later than usual.

The central mountains traditionally peak during the last week of September. For Colorado's southern mountains, it’s the first week of October.
