Post Updated: September 14, 2017 It seems that every Colorado travel writer has authored an article about scenic fall drives around our beautiful state. I’ve decided to do the same, but with a twist. With gas prices going back up (again), it’s hard to justify driving miles and miles simply to take photographs of aspen trees, however, I’m going to share with you three scenic autumn drives around Colorado that

Greeley never ceases to surprise me. It’s an unassuming city, better known for beef than almost anything else, but then there’s the music. From the city’s inception, it has embraced music. The last time I visited the Greeley History Museum, I learned that the city is home to one of the nation’s longest running orchestras. The University of Northern Colorado is also well-known for an outstanding School of Music, so
