Early this morning I drove into Eldorado Canyon to see how the Autumn colors were fairing. The colors were pretty good compared to the last few years and luckily the ever present wind in the canyon didn’t down all the leaves yet. Taking a few photos I decided to come back in the afternoon, when the sun would be illuminating the canyon interior. As I arrived in the evening the sun was making its final journey over the mountains. The afternoon lighting in the canyon at this time of year is pretty spectacular and I’d highly suggest a visit to the canyon in the Fall. Overall the colors were near or at peak but there were patches of trees already prepared for Winter. With some of the Autumn colors starting to fade, it was a reminder that its only a matter of time before the cold winds of Winter are upon us.
