Travelers across the state of Colorado are taking to the mountain roads and passes to get a glimpse of the colorful foliage. The Colorado Department of Transportation reminds motorists to be aware of increased traffic, especially over the weekends.
Every fall when the quaking aspens start to turn gold, high country roads and highways see an increase in traffic. Both Colorado locals and tourists alike hit the roads in their cars, trucks, motorcycles and RVs. CDOT officials stress the importance for drivers and those taking photos outside of their vehicles to watch out for each other.
