Carie and I spent a day driving around leaf peepin’ on a loop through the northern front range and out through Rocky Mountain NP. 

We headed north along the front range and into the mountains at Fort Collins on hwy 14. Nothing too dramatic, but it was fun to see the area. The road meandered through canyons before opening up into larger valleys and past farms.

We swung south and up into Lake Granby on our way to Trail Ridge Road and the western side of the park,
