Final Update – 10/12/2020

Some rain, snow, and wind swept through yesterday knocking off most of the remaining leaves. Snow capped peaks made for beautiful scenery by the end of the day, and bookended another great fall foliage season here in Crested Butte.

Kebler Pass still has just a bit more to offer in spots. Fallen leaves can also make for interesting photos while they hold onto their golden color for a few more days. Until next year…
