In the fall, Lake County's scenery becomes even more beautiful when the aspen leaves turn brilliant shades of yellow, gold & orange. Mark your calendars. Fall comes early at this elevation; at 10,152', Leadville is the highest incorporated city in North America. The best time to catch the foliage is usually early- to mid-September.
