Flatfender Jeep Club Takes on Colorado Fall Colors

Oct 9, 2015
“It’s a Jeep thing…You wouldn’t understand.”
Those words, more commonly plastered on a bone-stock Liberty Sport than a dedicated trail machine, mean more in the context of the 2015 Colorado Fall Colors Tour than they do in probably any situation except Easter Jeep Safari. That’s because, for one week each autumn, more than a dozen vintage flatfendered Jeeps crawl the Colorado Rocky Mountains in search of fir and pine forests, yellow aspen cathedrals, verdant cottonwoods, and green willow groves. In that setting, the Jeep thing is indeed a real, vaunted phenomenon, if you're lucky enough to understand it.

Crawling through the mountain towns of the Central Rockies, the team of CJ-2s, CJ-3s, military MBs, and other assorted classic Jeeps made for some fantastic photo subjects, as seen through the lens of Paul Sites. The whole album is available on his Facebook page, Paul’s Photography Adventures. It's a visual tribute to Colorado’s fall beauty, which blankets vast expanses of the state’s terrain in brilliant red, orange, and yellow. Although the state’s dry climate means the seasonal foliage only lasts a few weeks at most, its colors are as vivid as what you’d find anywhere else.
The trails looked mighty fun as well, with some hillclimbing, rockcrawling, and water crossing that likely barely taxed the capabilities of the legendary proto-SUVs. We’re well-documented Jeep (and specifically flatfender) fans here, and this trip looks like it’d be worth the drive from California to join up.

Maybe next year. Until then, we’re going to enjoy looking at the photos and reading the trip’s whole forum thread, found at The CJ2A Page.
