As you can see, the fall colors in the high elevations are beginning to change nicely – this was from Saturday morning.  The lower elevations still have a lot of green – if I had to predict, I think this upcoming week will be a lot better with next weekend possibly being the best.  Monday’s predicted cold front could add some nice snow on the mountains and could speed the change up a bit.  I’m getting excited for the fall colors!

  1. Ron,
    It is eye candy for me, I love the view AND colors together.

    Shall I say “picture perfect?”


  2. I grew up in the Northeast and I always hated the fall colors. It was depressing to think that cold, dreary weather was on the way for the next 6 months. Now that I live in Florida and I see pictures such as this, I’d kind of like to go back sometime to see it again.

  4. What the heck Ron – you leave Alaska and take all the sunshine with you? Beautiful fall colors up in Denali, but pretty drab weather. 🙂

    Those colors up there are sure amazing aren’t they. Bummer about the weather. Unfortunately, that is a frequent occurrence as well.

  6. First word that came to mind when i saw this pic – “stunning”. I think it has been used already :-). Beautiful!

  8. Every photo in RMNP is worthy of a postcard when the aspens are turning. Was this one of Bear Lake taken on the trail to Bierstadt? The other end of that trail is pretty spectacular too, isn’t it?

  9. Great Shot – I was up there this past week. I’m wondering how you got up that high. I looked for a way to hike up farther for a view of the lake but didn’t see one..
