Season Ending Fall Colors Glory
Aspen crowns, Grand Canyon North Rim
The end of the season at the North Rim of Grand Canyon. A perfect fall, perfect weather for the aspen colors. It’s been a great five months here, and to be living here from when the leaves first came out in May until the peak colors and leaf drop now has been quite satisfying.
The aspen colors up here are now past their peak overall, but there are still lots of lovely colors, in the late turning groves of trees, and even individual trees. When set against the trademark Arizona clear blue sky, the aspen golds are even more brilliant.
