Catching Fire


We went for a drive this morning up one of the nearby canyons - something I have been anxiously looking forward to all week. I packed up my nice camera to capture autumnal glory in high resolution, only to find I had left the memory card at home. Such a typical Natalie moment. Luckily I had my little pocket camera in my bag.  Not the digital quality I was hoping for, but beautiful nonetheless.  Color like this is awe inspiring, even when the clarity is less than perfect. 






The experts have said local mountain fall foliage is at its apex right now, and I concur - the color is amazing. However, snow in the higher elevations is coming later this week - hard to believe when we are still experiencing temps in the 80's.  If you live around here (Utah), you better go quickly. By the time autumn really hits the valleys, the canyons are done, and this is one show you don't want to miss!
