Fall Colors Have Arrived

At the Kaibab National Forest, adjacent to Grand Canyon National Park’s North Rim.  At an elevation between eight to 9,000 feet, Autumn arrives early.  The Aspens were just beginning to change colors and should be at full color around the first of October. But small pockets couldn’t wait.
