Grand Mesa Welcomes Fall With Color Sunday
KREX News Room
Grand Mesa- Fall is here, and hundreds were checking out the fall foliage on the Grand Mesa.
Every year, the community there comes together to celebrate the change of colors by holding its popular Color Sunday. Visitors flocked to the the Mesa Community Center for the town's annual turkey dinner. Smokey Bear and Woodsy Owl were also a hit. Powderhorn Ski Resort offered the popular one hour lift rides, giving the public a chance to see the fresh fall colors up close.
The colorful tradition gives everyone a chance to stop and appreciate the beauty of the Grand Mesa. "The aspens are everybody's favorite. They are turning the dark golden yellow but there's a lot of other colors too. The scrub oak turns a nice rusty red. It's a beautiful time of year," explained Carrie Surber from the Grand Mesa Visitor Center.
"As you see all around the colors are changing. It's a great opportunity to come out with your family and friends and spend some time together," explained Sarah Blessington from Powderhorn Ski Resort.
Powderhorn continues its lift rides next weekend from 11 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Rides are $12 for adults and $5 for children 10 and under.
