There’s smoke in the air.
But there’s also autumn in the air.
Mornings are crisp, chilly and awesome.
Leaves are slowly changing from green to yellow.
And here’s where you can catch the first glimps of changing colors.
Vedauwoo is magical right now. Actually it’s always magical. But a stroll along Turtle Rock Trail or Box Canyon or even the backside around Blair is where you can head to catch changing colors contrasting against Sherman Granite. Beautiful!
Tie City and Happy Jack
Honestly sometimes I forget to write or even think about Tie City and Happy Jack because they are just so convenient that I sometimes get tired of exploring there. For a change of pace I like to head to the Summit trailhead, just across the highway from the rest area. Fall leaves are dropping to the ground there right now.
Little Laramie Trailhead
The trail network from the Little Laramie trailhead are some of my favorites to hike during the fall. Maybe it’s the leafy trees and the lodgepole pines along the way? Or simply that my kids love the picnic area at the trailhead. Regardless, Little Laramie is where it’s at right now.
But I’ll admit… I’ve only been getting out once a week lately, every Friday morning with the Little Laramie Hikers, so if you have a recommendation for fall leaf viewing we’d love a comment letting everyone know where to go.
