Home Colors


Colors change a couple of weeks later at our home in the Uinta Basin (5100 ft, 1550 m) than they do in the highest mountains, where fall was in full glory by mid-September.  Our home aspens, above, wear gold in mid-October. 

The cottonwoods (above) and elm trees along the creek behind the house are changing now. 

We've followed autumn as it marches down from the mountains.  Up high, the first snow has already fallen. 
Winter is nigh.

  2. Fantastic. What a great eye you have for color and beauty. Some of our leaves froze while still green. They are an ugly brownish green. Thanks.

  4. Very lovely! Our fall colors in southern California arrive even later...more like mid-November (except in the mountains).

  6. The aspens, cottonwoods and elms are gorgeous under those sunny skies. Looking at these photos, it's hard to imagine that the first snow has fallen at higher altitudes. It hasn't snowed here yet, but a couple of hours north by car it has.

  14. Love those fall colors! I miss having pretty colored leaves in the fall. The area we live now has only rusty browns and almost black and this year it even worse than usual.

  24. Those gold colors are so gorgeous, especially against the blue sky!

  25. Your fall colors are a gorgeous contrast to the blue skies. Love the new header. Guessing you've moved to a lower elevation. My current 5000 ft were sunny and in the mid 70s today.

  28. The aspens are gorgeous. We have nothing approaching that golden color around here.

  29. Autumn is the crayola of nature. The best season I ponder best with life.

    Those colourful foliage reminds me of Orange, where we originally lived down under.

  31. Perfectly inviting. I've never seen a tree full of yello or orange leaves ever in actual. These are some really beautiful photos! Nice shots!

  32. Not much beats blue and yellow. In this area, we don't have the myriad of jeweled colors, but our skies were made for those yellow trees. Gorgeous photos!

  33. Wonderful autumn photos. I see autumn by you is the same as by us.
    My favorite is your last photo with yellow trees and that gorgeous sky above.

  34. Hi Janie, Just wanted to visit to see if you have had snow near your property as yet. I see fall is still in full glory around you. We're making a road trip to Salt Lake late in Nov - hope the weather doesn't get too bad, though we might bring our skis along!
