Sure, the feature image of this article isn't the wall of golden leaves that a Colorado fall is known for producing, but it is an early indicator that fall colors are well on their way.
Taken on September 6 in the Sangre de Cristo range at an elevation of around 9,900 feet of elevation, the aspen grove where this photo was taken had widespread yellow among green leaves. It's also worth noting that there were a number of golden leaves that had already fallen to the ground.
While these leaves might be golden, some sources indicate that changing leaves may not keep this classic hue for long.
According to the Denver Post, Colorado's early season cold temperatures will likely result in a widespread loss of color, as leaves turn brown instead of yellow.
