Echo Canyon

Monday, October 28, 2013

After spending the weekend photographing the colorful cottonwood trees around Price, I thought it might be a good idea to get out after work and see if there was any autumn color left in the Colorado National Monument, so I decided to make a quick hike up Echo Canyon. It had been very windy all day while I was at work, so I was concerned that all the leaves would have blown off the trees by the time I got out there.

Hiking the trail up Echo Canyon. There were plenty of leaves recently blown off the trees on the ground.

While there were plenty of bare trees thanks to the wind, there were still a few that were sheltered enough from the wind and were not affected.
