Paonia Travel Guide: 9 reviews and 20 photos

Traveling here is just the begining

There are a number of ways to get to Paonia. My favorite is coming from the east from Carbondale. The Mc Clure pass is a visual treat in every season. Just one of the chapters in the beauty of Western Colorado!

There are so many different thing to experience along the way!

Seasons are all different

Every season here is exceptional in it's own right. The colors of fall are simply breath taking. Like something out of a disney movie.

I keep looking for Bambi on my drives thru Keebler pass on the way to Crested Butte. There is nature at every turn, just an amazing thing for city folk!

The Fruit of the Rokies!

This area however does produce some of the tastiest fruit anywhere. THe summer months are filled with festivities celebrating the different crops around this area. Everything from Peaches to Cherries, Corn and Grapes.

I used to come out here to vacation from Los Angeles. Now I live here and vacation everyday. Great place to visit even a greater place to live.

Those grapes grow in my front yard!
