Every year it's different.

   Every year we climb a mountain somewhere in the desert southwest in the fall to see the changing of the colors. The end of summer and coming of winter. It's a great time for weather and the temperatures are great. Great time for a hike to see what colors are the brightest this year. Some years it's all yellow and some it's mostly red, some years there's some of each. One more thing, you may find yourself in areas that you've never seen before with some really great scenery. This year was like that for us. See what we found this year.
   On our way up to Yankee Meadows Reservoir we saw a lot of pretty Aspen's that were changing color with more to come. We also saw a few maples that had turned red. It was a perfect day for relaxing in the mountains.

Foliage Changes

Second Left Hand Road
   On the way up Yankee Road we found a new outcrop of red sandstone that we'd never seen before. It seems like you can always expect to find new sites in areas that you may have been in the past. This was a nice find.
   Second Left Hand Road (what a name) runs right behind the pinnacles in this photo. Very scenic drive, but we'd never seen this easy to access overlook before. Only a short hike from the road. There are a lot of hiking and ATV trails in this areas, as well as 4x4 roads.
   This whole area is pretty and should be visited to see more. We've been up here before (several times) and have never been disappointed other than the reservoir being awfully low. HERE is another trip to the reservoir and surrounding area.
aaaaaaaaaaaaiii
