Default Fall in northern Arizona

I took a trip to northern Arizona this weekend. Here are three pictures from the Snowbowl ski area of Mt. Humphries. No snow yet, but plenty of beautiful fall foliage.

This one was taken from the ski lift, which also operates in non-ski season.


Part of the road to the lodge


This one was actually taken several hours earlier than the first two

Wow, I don't recall yellows like that in New England.

Do you have any pics of the ski trails and lifts?

Nice series of photos

I was there in April a few years ago and it was
all snowcapped!

Yes, I do. Quick 'n dirty... I'm not bothering with borders this time.

From the bottom


10,000' (3048m) above sea level, and climbing!


From the top. This picture came out blurry, probably because my hands were shaking in the freezing cold and wind! I was able to get it looking halfway-decent with shrinking and sharpening.


I also took another look at the first picture from my original post and realized that maybe the trees look a little too purely yellow. They're a bit more amber than that. He's another version of the picture. The first one was also rotated to correct for camera tilt (hey, it was taken from a moving ski lift!) The version above is more pleasing to the eye, but the color of the aspens is more true-to-life in this one. Compare the yellow to how it looks in my other pictures.

Are those aspen trees.

I had the good fortune to surf around the Colorado Rockies, in an RV - not on ski's, and have similar pics on slides.

Isn't it just a breathtaking part of the country. Lovely shots. Make me want to see it all again.

Yes, the yellow trees are Aspens. The pines in the pictures taken on the mountain are Douglas Firs and spruces (there are a couple different kinds of them). In the picture of the mountain from below, the pines toward the bottom of the mountain are Ponderosas, which grow at lower elevations than the firs and spruces.
