This seems the longest autumn ever!

Just off Highway 162, what a surprise.

There is an uprooted cottonwood tree on the north side of the middle inlet that made a terrific picture frame.

These willow leaves in Spring Creek look like liquid gold.

Wonderful color right in my own back yard.

lazy leaf-peeping

You don't need to work too hard right now to see great color. Rent a place to stay up in the valley, picnic in a park, or sit by the reservoir: they've all got color nearby today.

Whole valley is lit up today

The color just keeps getting better. Here is a mix of color from the North Ogden Pass, the Old Highway fishing site on Pineview Reservoir and the Wolf Creek Canyon trail on the way to Powder Mountain. I got around the valley today!

Definitely Fall Feeling Pictures

I realize that I am a bit behind the chronology of this blog, but below are some photos from a prior workshop at Pineview Reservoir, near Eden, Utah. It was a cloudy morning and definitely gave the feel of fall, so I chose to post these photos that remind me of that feeling.

Ogden Valley Fall Color from North Fork Park

Peak Color on a Sunday Afternoon

We live in an amazing place! Sunday was beautiful and the colors were truly spectacular. We hiked the North Fork Trail and had to stop numerous times to enjoy the view and snap some photos. It was a bonus day indeed.

A Walk in the Woods

Hiking in the early evening is a wonderful experience in our mountains - quite, crisp, full of wildlife.

Sancturay Ranch, Huntsville UT Lives up to its Name

Lynn Taylor of the Ogden Camera Club writes, "Had a wonderful time Saturday morning at Sanctuary Ranch.  The colors were spectacular.  Everywhere you looked the leaves were bright reds and oranges. Thanks to Pam and Greg for the opportunity to shoot from such a wonderful place.  I understand now how it got its name."

Red! Orange! Yellow!
Thank you to the folks at Sanctuary Ranch for this great opportunity to catch the fall colors on this gorgeous piece of property. If I could dig a couple million $$ out of the couch cushions I would SO buy this land...

Fall color part 2

Despite the cold and sometimes rainy weather, we were able to find some beautiful color. And had a great time doing it!
