What is fall in Colorado like?
Autumn in Colorado is much chillier than summertime, but definitely not quite as cold as winter gets. Typically, autumn begins in September, when the trees begin to change, and the temperatures steadily begin to fall. Average high temperatures in early fall are about 70 degrees, gradually dropping to an average of about 40 degrees through November and into winter. Sometimes, there will be snow flurries, and others, it will be rainy. We suggest folks looking for fall color in Colorado hike some of the incredible mountain trails – now is the best time.
How many pumpkin farms in Colorado are there?
Though it’s hard to say exactly how many pumpkin farms in Colorado there are, do rest assured that there are literally hundreds of farms all over the state – many of whom grow pumpkins in the fall. More still are open to the public, offering pick-your-own pumpkins, sunflowers, and more. You’ll also find some delightful corn mazes in Colorado on some of the same farms growing the pumpkins; there are many farms that go all-out in the fall and embrace the changing seasons with all they’ve got.
