My American Southwest Adventures (Part II) - Fall Colors

Fall is my favorite season for so many reasons. First off, it marks the start of hunting season. Secondly, the cool, crisp air feels amazing and fall nights are perfect for bonfires. But what I've come to really enjoy and appreciate over the past decade are the amazing fall colors!

Arizona is such an incredibly diverse state. You have deserts, mountains, canyons, and everything in between. This means you get to enjoy the fall colors for that much longer. The first trees to change are the Aspens in the mountains near Flagstaff. Then, as the fall season carries on and eventually turns to winter, fall colors appear at progressively lower elevations, all the way down to the bottom of the Grand Canyon.

The photo opportunities are endless! Here is a collection of fall photos I have taken over the past couple of years.
