(Continued from Fall in the Wasatch)
The colors of autumn are quickly fading in the mountains of the Wasatch. I managed to squeeze in some more quality time with nature to take more photos before the color disappears for the season.
I hope you are able to get out and enjoy some nice fall scenery this season, wherever that may be. Here in Utah, the higher elevations lose their color much sooner than the valleys. So I spent the last couple weeks seeing what remained. The foliage this year wasn’t the greatest, as a widespread disease affected a lot of the trees in the area causing them to turn a dull brown color rather than the intermediate vibrant tones.
As always, the Alpine Loop area and Mount Timpanogos are among my favorite places to see fall color.
Little Cottonwood Canyon was showing off some color too. The Red Pine Trail is one of my personal favorite trails near Salt Lake City. It has some great views of the canyon and the Salt Lake Valley in the distance.
The fall colors may be disappearing in the mountains, but they are still in the early stages in the valleys, so there will be more photos to come.
Here are some more recent autumn-themed photos from around the Wasatch:
