Last Dollar Road-40

Last Dollar Road-40

Last Dollar Road is one of the all-time-best Colorado Back-Roads. There are great Colorado vistas around almost every corner, and believe me, there are lots of corners on this road. I try to drive Last Dollar Road every year and I never come home without at least one good image. Unfortunately, winter time which is the time you are getting this article is not the best time of year to drive Last Dollar Road. In fact I'm sure it isn't even open after the first few miles after early November or so. Don't try this road until at least late June. The very best time to see Last Dollar Road is in the fall when the aspens are turning. This usually happens sometime between the 20th of September and the 10th of October. Right around the end of September is usually the peak of the fall folliage in the San Juan mountains. Any time from late June through the summer and up to perhaps the end of October is a great time to travel Last Dollar Road also.
