Found in San Isabel National Forest in Pueblo County, CO. Pics are a few years old so they're a little bad and I can't get more (my apologies). However, I can provide more information if needed.

The website is failing to let me upload a photo so I've hosted them here:

The red fruits look like Mountain Ash (Sorbus scopulina) but the leaves in your photos appear too broad. Low confidence but maybe a starting point for investigation.

Sorry blinking advert cuts my post in half.
Finding it difficult to see details clearly.
Leaves appear to be opposite to each other..eg Viburnum.

Do not think Sorbus scopulina is an option as it has compound, pinnate leaves which are toothed
First link shows one single leaf....One stalk with many small leaflets.

Below is a link to a field guide for this area. maybe that might help.

Looks like a Hawthorn to me.

Crataegus species found in CO include C. chrysocarpa. C. erythropoda, C. rivularis, C. saligna and C. succulenta per the USDA Plants database.

Hope this helps,
Virginia

Edited: I guess I have Hawthorns on the brain lately, but after a closer look at your photos, I'm now wondering if your mystery plant could be Sambucus racemosa?
