Drive The Grand Mesa and You Will Get These Incredible Views
The Grand Mesa is an extra beautiful wonder in the Fall. If hiking isn't your favorite, there are countless pull off's on the drive that allows you to experience the beauty still.
You are surrounded by trees, mostly Aspens by the road, making it a tunnel of yellow. That's not the only color you will see, though. Red and orange are scattered in the yellow, making the red leaves look extra bright.
There are pull-offs at almost every turn. Some are large while others are a one or two car dirt pull off. Wherever you stop, the scenery is breathtaking. With over 300 lakes located on the Grand Mesa, you can typically see at least one.
There are also many side roads that lead to trails and other areas. There is something extra beautiful about a dirt road surrounded by Aspen trees.
The drive has an abundance of views and picture opportunities. It is the perfect time of year to drive over the Grand Mesa and each day will look a little different.
Don't forget your camera.
