What time in September is a good time to see fall colors this year?

Any help would be great.

Typically the last 2 weeks of the month are good, as is the 1st week in Oct, altho past their peak by then. You will see primarily yellow from the aspens. Some of them will turn a reddish/orange color. At Telluride's altitude there is not much other than conifers and aspen. Driving up Dallas Divide to Telluride from Ridgway offers some great sweeping views.

As of right now, the leaves are hinting at changing color. I think that the next three weeks will be prime this year.
