Mother Nature’s Show

As summer waves goodbye, fall begins its short visit, turning leaves of green to a wide array of orange and yellow hues.

Aspen trees in Middle Canyon turn to gold, leaving leafy foliage that seems to have been touched by King Midas himself against a clear blue sky. Where the leaves have fallen, there is a carpet of leaves in a rainbow of shades, sometimes against a thin background of early snow.

In Soldier Canyon, the changing autumn leaves serve as bright vermillion spots set off by a landscape of green junipers highlighted by sunlight. Higher in the canyon, a mix of pines and junipers provide even more contrast for fall’s changing colors.

Fall’s display serves as a good reason to get off the couch, get outside, and marvel at one of nature’s best shows.
