Speaking of suggestions, another good option for getting on flatwater to look at the leaves is Twin Lakes Reservoir. You can paddle across the lake to the old resort site of Interlaken which is renovated and open to the public. From the shores you are surrounded by mixed slopes that get very colorful, including the flanks of our state's highest mountain, Elbert.
