It's peak time for gold in Summit County

by The Mountain Living Team

Changing leaves in Summit County ColoradoSeptember in Colorado is a beautiful time of year.  All the leaves on the aspen trees change to a beautiful gold, sometimes with a little more orange in them.  Combine that with the deep blue sky, the green pine trees and sometimes, if we are lucky, a light dusting of snow on the mountain tops and it's absolutely gorgeous around here!

The leaves seem to be changing a little earlier this year, maybe it's because of the lack of moisture we've had this summer, I don't really know.  It's mid September and the gold patches are everywhere.  Like normal, there are still some reluctant green leafed aspen around and some that have already dropped their leaves and are ready for winter but most are donning their gold in all their glory.

If you're not sure where to go to check out the leaves, here are a couple of my favorite spots.

  • Boreas Pass Road in Breckenridge.  As you head all the way to the top of the pass the road will turn to dirt and the aspen line the road.  It's hard to drive too far down this stretch without stopping several times to take photos.
  • Eaglesmere in Silverthorne.  Near Heeney and Green Mountain Reservoir is the Eaglesmere Trailhead.  Just a few steps on the trail and you are in a huge aspen grove.  If you catch it just right, the gold leaves will cover the ground and still shimmer in the sunlight on the trees. While you're here, check out Cataract Lake.  The trailhead is very close to the Eaglesmere trailhead.  You can combine the beautiful aspen groves with a reflective mountain lake.

There are aspen all over the high country.  Take a drive down any road in a residential area or on a highway and you're bound to see areas that just take your breath away.  It's a beautiful time to be in Summit County but be prepared for anything.  We can have warm, sunny days or cold and snowy days in September.  

$20 will get you a Parade in Summit County the next 2 weekends!

Parade of Homes 2017 in Summit County ColoradoThe Summit County Parade of Homes runs this weekend, September 23rd & 24th, and next weekend, September 30th & October 1st.  For just $20 you can tour 17 amazing homes across the county.  I’m sure the homes will impress but if they don’t you certainly won’t be disappointed by the changing aspen leaves. 

The county is a glistening gold with a little orange and red scattered in right now.  Many trees are still green but they will be changing in time for the Parade.  It will be a fantastic time to visit 4 homes in Silverthorne, 1 in Dillon, 2 in Keystone, 2 in Copper and 8 more in Breckenridge.

Tickets are available at some local merchants and at just 5 of the homes on the tour.  Be sure and get your wristband to give you access or make sure your first stop is one of the 5 homes selling tickets.  Those 5 homes are:

#1 260 High Park Ct in Silverthorne
#5 111 Centennial Ct in Dillon
#8 1062 Beeler Place at Copper
#10 181 Shores Lane in Breckenridge
#16 112 S Harris St in Breckenridge

This year’s Parade includes a couple of remodels, some newly constructed townhomes and, of course, some amazing single family homes.  Several of the properties on the tour are available for sale.  If you fall in love and don’t want to go home empty handed, we’re ready to emphatically represent you during your purchase.  If the homes on the Parade aren’t right for you, but you want a place in Summit County, we will still represent you with the same vigor.  Of course, there’s no obligation to buy anything.  You are welcome to steal decorating ideas, see what the latest trends are, find out about local builders and companies that can supply you with the products to make your home feel like a Parade home, or just simply look.

The 2017 Summit County Parade of Homes is a great opportunity to spend a weekend, or two, in the mountains and check out some fantastic scenery, both natural and man-made.

View the Parade of Homes Magazine online or pick one up when you buy your tickets.  More information is available on the Summit County Builders website.

Summit County colors, a Colorado slideshow

There is nothing more beautiful than Colorado in the fall….well, maybe Colorado in winter, or summer…

But in September, there is nothing more beautiful.
