Beautiful fall colors and herds of sheep make for some awesome photography.

Fall time in Colorado is incredibly scenic, and if you drive up to Crested Butte, you may find herds of sheep being led down the mountains. Drive along Kebbler Pass in September and October, and look for these huge herds of sheep. Though it can be difficult to track them down, they make for amazing photos and a very rad experience! Border collies can be seen herding them across roads and slowly down the mountain. This is definitely a unique experience.
