Autumn comes and goes early in the mountains so I got right to it upon the first signs. There’s a lot of talk each fall about ‘peak’ color and I’ve come to the conclusion it’s difficult to pinpoint. There may be aspen groves of green, peak color and bare branches all in the same area. I do enjoy fall colors when there is still some green in the palette and that’s how September starts. The weather can be unpredictable here and later in the month snow came to the high elevations … creating snow-capped peaks and adding more beauty to the landscape. The nights are getting colder and as I write this we’ve had some windy days and a snow that reached the lower elevations. Fall color was too short this year but there are still some October images to come. Presented here are some September favorites.
