Peak fall color arrived in southern Utah this week above 8000 feet but there was a grim forecast, calling for oodles of heavy rain. Feeling optimistic I set out with my gear knowing that if the snow level dropped, I could get fruit loops color together with a fresh mantle of snow.
I got on the road to the Kolob Terrace and started to climb.
The road got snowier.
The fog and low clouds made pea soup.
That wasn’t gonna work so I blindly continued on until I reached 9000 ft.
A stand of aspens suddenly appeared mixed with every color of the rainbow.
There was an Aspen stacked fence, perfectly positioned, completing the composition.
These days it is oh so rare when earthly elements align themselves
and speak “ this is art”.
