Picture this: breathing in crisp Colorado mountain air, leaves in every shade of green, orange, yellow and red surrounding you and your family cruising in style next to the Arkansas River in a Polaris RZR or Slingshot. Sound too good to be true? Think again. Buena Vista is one of the best places to take a weekend trip with the family and view the changing of seasons.
The Autumn colors in Buena Vista usually peak in mid-September through early October. A word of advice: the aspen trees higher in elevation peak first with the lower areas along the Arkansas River changing colors a couple of weeks after.
