The high country’s amazing fall foliage season is just getting started and will kick into high gear over the next couple of weeks. This Saturday and Sunday (Sept 24 and 25), the Two Mile High Club will sponsor free jeep and 4-wheel drive tours into the World’s Greatest Gold Camp, where participants can view rare scenes of the district and spectacular aspen-viewing spots. The tours depart from the Cripple Creek Heritage Center from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
In addition, TMJ writer Cathy Mahrholz recommends Park County Road 77, also known as Tarryall Road, which connects with many dirt roads leading into the National Forest. This road is located near Lake George off Hwy. 24. And from now through mid-October, the Forest Service will showcase a “Fall Colors” spotlight on its home page.
