If you are a fan of shooting pictures of the changing colors in Colorado, one of our favorite spots is Squaw Pass. It can also be a romantic spot to have a picnic.
It isn't to far of a drive from Denver and is totally accessible for any car/motorcycle. We have went there a few times before and every time the views have been breath taking. Depending on when you come out there is a high probability you will see people shooting family/wedding photos.
There is a really pretty meadow at the very top where you park. There is also a walking path that takes you down through the yellow trees across a small brook to Upper Beaver Brook Reservoir.
If you are interested in a larger hike you can always head over to Elk Meadows.
