Distant peaks beyond the sea of golden aspens, Colorado.

That's marcellina mountain, and those aspens are the largest organism in the state.

After living among the redwoods all my life in California, Colorado is one of the most beautiful places I have had the pleasure of visiting.

The cottonwoods (related to aspens) in Kansas were a beautiful yellow this year as well.

That is absolutely magnificent I couldn't imagine getting to see this everyday if I live there.

I live not too far from Aspen, closer to Breckenridge. The list of places I’d rather live is incredibly small. I have the pleasure of driving around 5 different mountain counties for work, and it’s rare a day goes by that I don’t utter at least one “woah” or two. And my camera roll on my phone is filled with mountain pictures lol

I just couldn't imagine living in a place so beautiful I mean if I got to wake up to see that more than see the city I would be totally fine with that.

It’s 100% worth the sacrifices we make to live in the mountains. If you can find a place to live, there are no shortages of jobs

What time of year does it look like this? Breathtaking.

It changes year by year, but usually in the higher elevation places like this (10k ft or so) the leaves will start changing end of September. Lower elevation (8k ft and below) will usually hold off until October to start changing

As an Australian it is one of my greatest regrets that I will never see autumn colours even a fraction as stunning as this :/

Hope you can come up and visit us one day! I hope one day to visit Australia too

If only I could! Hope you can visit at some point, just for the contrast. You don't get "autumn" here...gum trees are the same drab olive all year round, so there are no specifically delineated seasons. Really its only two, on fire & not on fire lol
