Fall tourism in cannabis country Colorado
So once again it is that time of the year, where all of the beautiful aspens start to change color and tourists flock to the mountains to see the colorful array displayed in front of them.
Fall in Colorado is a sight to behold, with the millions of Aspens and pine trees covering the mountain ranges Colorado is the best destination to see fall colors.
A great place to start your fall cannabis vacation would be in Colorado Springs, Colorado. This a great town is right on the bottom of Pike’s Peak, one of the tallest mountains on the rocky mountain chain.

Now the prices will give you sticker shock as they are about $425.00 per ounce, so grab a little for your day trip. You can also pick up edibles, vaporizer pens, and concentrates at the two stores they have for you in that city.
Heading up into the Ute Valley Pass, passing Garden of the Gods you’ll start to see the the changing landscape before your eyes. But make sure to keep your eyes on the road as this is the season that Colorado has many head on car collisions due to the beautiful landscape and people not paying attention to their driving.
The Ute Pass is very easy to get to as it sits west of Colorado Springs to just up in the hills. Following highway 24 up through Manitou Springs heading up into Woodland Park you’ll start to see the leaves change. As you drive thru Woodland Park you can stop in and check out the Doughnut Mill and get their delicious and famous biscuits and gravy.
