Fall Colors Have Arrived In Zion! Sort Of

At the upper elevations (8,000 feet) in and around Zion National Park where the aspen trees  grow, the leaves have not changed much in color.  They are mostly green still.  Except for one spot I found Friday where the sun seems to shine all day long at Kolob Reservoir. Images below are of the colorful aspens and sunset along Kolob Terrace in Zion National Park.
