I really did get way behind this past fall. I had so many trip photos I wanted to share, but with the moving and settling in, visitors and Christmas, I just couldn't keep up. Things are quiet now, the kids are gone, back to school and this mom is left with time on her hands. When we planned our trip for October, we were hoping for good timing, spectacular color. We were disappointed a bit. Fall color in Zion came late this year, however, as we drove to higher elevations we did run into a little color. The aspens up in Bryce Canyon had turned golden and a lot of them had already dropped their leaves.
