One of my favorite runs this time of year is a lolly-pop loop starting from Mill D North to Desolation Lake, the Crest, Millcreek, Dog Lake, and back. It's just over 13 miles and gains around 3000 vertical. The vibrant colors are just past prime at the higher elevations but are sure to be coming into form at some point along the way.
