A glimpse of Wyoming fall



Check out that gorgeous willow scrub. This was after our fossil hunting outing, of which there will soon be photos--have to take the shots of our finds first. (Yes, frigg , we did find a few little fishies. ;) Little, but cool. ) Sadly, the sunbeam didn't last long enough for me to do the purples justice.

I don't think Vermont has much over on Wyoming in terms of fall color.

We're now in Moab, Utah, washing clothes in a laundromat (already showered in a hostel), getting ready to head into Arches National Park.

Oh, man, that's gorgeous. Clearly I must at some point take a trip to Wyoming in the fall. The upper plains and northwest corners of this country are about the only regions I haven't been in.

Thank you so much for sharing these photos with us. I hope the book idea pans out!

Yeah, it is beautiful. I think the colors would have been even better if not for that weird cold snap.

Oh! I should have read further! Mom actually grew up in a little rural place called Willow Creek that's now part of the Ute Reservation, but it was near-enough to Moab that she was often there.

Gorgeous picture.

I just love the willows in this area, so much variety!

I do hope you get to/have gone to Zion's National Park. It's my favourite of all the national parks.

And while you're in the area, feel free to try Bumbleberry Pie. Yum!

We're heading down south now (we're in Torrey at the moment) and will see a bit of Escalante then Bryce then Zion. :)

Bumbleberry hasn't been offered anywhere we've eaten, but I'll keep an eye out for it.
