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.

” I’m Only Happy When It Rains”

It finally rained at Zion National Park yesterday after a month of parched earth.  Things come alive when it pours and it really poured.  Waterfalls appear and rising fog adds atmosphere.  The Virgin River at The Narrows was closed due to a flow rate of 787 CFS, which is cubic feet per second.

Cedar Canyon is between Cedar City and Cedar Breaks National Monument in Southern Utah. It is marked by Ponderosa Pines, Aspens and sandstone cliffs.  Autumn is a special time to visit at or past peak color.
