Fall Colors from the Alpine Loop


As I sit and watch the first snow fall of the year I realize I haven't posted any of the photos I took just over a week ago of the gorgeous fall color I found on the Alpine Loop.


Last Sunday, to celebrate my homecoming, I got in my own car and headed to the Alpine Loop which has some of the best fall colors in Utah and happens to be practically in my back yard.


It was such a peaceful ride, just me, my camera and some good music.  No responsibilities and I was free to stop anytime I wanted to grab a photo or to just take in the beauty all around.


About half way through the trip I remembered that my car had a moon roof, then it took me digging out the owners manual to remember where the controller was to open it.  A sign the moon roof doesn't get much use.


If I had waited just a couple more days the leaves would have mostly been gone, so I feel lucky to have gotten home just in time for one of my favorite times of year.

I mentioned Friday I had discovered my local library had a great music collection.  I found a couple of Kasey Chambers' albums and have been listening to them pretty steadily.  I love her voice and her song writing.

Alpine Loop is just gorgeous! How blessed you are to live there. And you say it's snowing? I have had snow in my thoughts for the last couple of days, but all we are getting here in the midwest is a very bad wind storm. thanks for the peek at your view, it is stunning.

Beautiful photos! I have always wanted to go to America in the fall, just to see the colours of the trees! We don't get anything quite that spectacular in England!

Beautiful colours and images, sounds like you had a lovely drive in your car, something I would have enjoyed doing too. You are getting snow already! I heard the other day that some snow had fallen in the Highlands, that shocked me too!
