November is a quiet and beautiful time of year in Fourteener Country! The mountains are already topped with a soft blanket of white and it won't be long before Ski Cooper and Monarch Mountain open for the season. On most days in November you can hike on dry trail in the sun on the east side of the Arkansas River or take a quick drive west up one of the easily accessible mountain passes to play in the snow along the Continental Divide.
