Denver7’s Chief Meteorologist Mike Nelson says the dry weather this summer will bring aspens to their golden glory a little faster than usual. The colors are expected to peak a week or so ahead of schedule.
Nelson says the northern Colorado mountains will see the best color from Sept. 12-24. The central mountains will peak about five days later, and the southern mountains will reach their most brilliant colors the last few days of September and first five days or so of October.
