Southern Utah Painted With Fall Colors- Part One


I recently showcased fall images from The North Rim area of The Grand Canyon in Northern Arizona. The highlands of Southern Utah have been putting on its own fashion show this past week. This area is above the redrock country most associated with Southern Utah, reaching some 7,000 to 10,000 feet in elevation.  These beautiful sub-alpine forests contain awesome Aspen tree groves that provide most of the color in these mountains.  Stay tuned as the autumn colors migrate to lower elevations in the next month, including in and around Zion National Park.
