12:50 pm - Santa Fe Autumn

Previous Entry Share Next Entry

I'm usually fairly good at making a guess as to when the perfect time to head to the Santa Fe ski basin is to see the aspen trees turning. My definition of "perfect" is that not all of the trees have turned yet, so that there's a lovely mix of several different yellows, a bit of orangey-red, and still quite a bit of green. My guess was good this year, Sunday's trip to the mountain proved a success. Photo evidence under the cut.

Mmmm, pretty.

We seem to have skipped Autumn over here and gone straight to "miserable, flu-season winter"...or it could be just me...cough, sniffle, sputter...

Gorgeous photos.

Beautiful photos.

The colors here are just starting to turn but I've heard said that the trees just a few hours north of the cities are already at their peak. It's all very bittersweet.
