PM sent with some better areas.
I think those spots are a little high and Rocky for September. For others, not just you, don't forget that in the mid 11,000 to 12,000 foot range, the grass will start to dessicate sooner due to the earlier frosts compared to areas just 500 to 1,000 feet lower.

And areas near running water will likely stay greener (and therefore more palatable and nutritious)longer into the fall. Just a general rule of thumb to think about.
