If you want to see the colors of Colorado the time is now as evidenced by this video.

KUSA SKY 9 in Denver captured some of the Colorado colors from the air, giving us a spectacular birdseye view of the changing leaves.

The yellows are bright, the reds are magnificent, mix in a little brown and some green and you've got something that resembles a bowl full of peanut M & Ms, but much less fattening.

It's been a long, hot, dry summer and we can now begin to see how the changing leaves may be affected by this year's weather. It will be interesting to see if we notice anything different this year.

One thing we know for sure is there are plenty of places around the state to enjoy the gorgeous colors and remind us how wonderful it is to be living in Colorado.
