Autumn Colors Explode In Northern Arizona

The North Rim of The Grand Canyon and surrounding Kaibab National Forest yielded some intense fall colors this past week.  The aspens were on fire at around the 9,ooo foot altitude.

  5. Wow, your photos are so beautiful, Michael. I can just get lost in them. I think my favorite is the puffy dots of aspen in #2. 🙂

  6. What a tease to put the road picture last. Was that on the way or going home? In any case, it gave me wanderlust as your photos so often do.

    • Thanks Susanne. i was going home when I shot that last pic right through the front window of my vehicle. Of course I had stopped. Not many people take that road

      • Of this series, it’s the photos with the roads that I’m drawn to. I like the fact that they’re not well-traveled, too. Very Robert Frost.
