The Hills Are Alive...

With the colors of autumn. 

The aspens have turned to gold above 10,000 feet.  Below that, the maple trees are dressed in their fall best. 
These photos are from yesterday's ride to Big Ridge, in the Rock Creek drainage of the Uintas.  The yellow in the foreground in the above photo is rabbit brush. 
This is one of the Lower Stillwater ponds.  If you enlarge, you'll see aspen gold high on the mountain to the left.  We hope to return for another ride when the aspens are fully changed.

  2. The hills are live, with the magnificence of fall. How beautiful it is to absorb. Great reflection. Hope you get back to get the flow blow of the Aspen. It's beginning to happen here.
