Aspens & Groundcover Fall
Fall in the Wasatch Mountains, Alpine Loop Scenic Byway. Fall colors are highly dependent on waterfall that year in conjunction with timing of temperature drop and snow. A day too late and the leaves will suddenly be "brown and down". This trip was timed perfectly to capture the yellowing of the aspens and the ground cover burning red at the same time. You can revisit the same place for for years and not get the two to happen together, so this day was a triumph for me. One of my favorite fall locations.
