Get your leaf-peep on with these photos from Aspen Mountain
At the height of fall in Colorado, as the leaves mature from sun blazed umbrellas into a landscaped rug, Colorado experiences a glowing transformation. Aspen Mountain, in particular bursts with an electric glaze, one that was too bright to ignore over the weekend when I was in Aspen to cover The Meeting, a ski and snowboard industry meeting of the minds. (See more photos after the jump).
So, I decided to hike straight from the base of Aspen Mountain where the gondola picks up, and around to canvass the southern tips of Ajax, a name familiar to locals educated on the mountain's history.
