Boreas Pass Fall Colors

Boreas Pass rock road cut
We are driving from Breckenridge Colorado to Como, Colorado along the old railroad route known as Boreas Pass. Because most of the route was a railroad grade back in the day, It's a very gradual grade that's relatively easy to climb in a standard passenger car. The scenery is spectacular and although the aspens are past their peak, the colors will be nice nonetheless.
