Up On Kolob Terrace

Kolob Terrace is a high-elevation area in and around Zion National Park. Unfortunately, I got up there a bit late for peak fall colors but this wilderness spot is special nonetheless.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


Aspen Trees Autumn-Post Peak

Even leaveless Aspen Trees have their appeal. At the North Rim of Grand Canyon National Park, Arizona.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


Aspen Tree Autumn Colors-Peak Color

Aspen trees were at full color at Grand Canyon National Park’s North Rim last week.  Paradoxically, nearby aspens were past peak. Those images to follow soon.

On The Road To the Grand Canyon

A recent drive to Grand Canyon National Park’s North Rim revealed some sights not normally associated with The Grand Canyon. Like wildlife, Aspens and Autumn Colors.

Blurred Aspens

Using In-Camera techniques, I photographed these past-peak color aspens while moving the camera slightly to achieve a blurred, ethereal look.

 


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.

Summertime at Kolob Terrace

In the high country near Zion National Park, you can escape the sweltering heat below at Kolob Terrace. Monsoonal moisture is now starting to enter Southern Utah yielding more relief and some refreshing greenery. That’s where I went yesterday. Eighty degrees is much more bearable than 105 degrees.
