Los Brazos in Fall

Part of Los Brazos, seen from above during the fall

Turning aspens along Ellis Trail last weekend. I love the way their leaves shimmer and dance.

The Tiniest Hint of Fall

Pecos River, Early Fall

I think I can say with confidence that fall is coming unusually late to New Mexico this year. I took this photo of the Pecos River from the old bridge at Tererro just a few days ago. As you can see, the aspens are just starting to turn — and that was true across the board in that part of the Pecos Wilderness.

Fall Blooms at El Malpais

And just like that, summer became fall last week. That I saw this blast of color at El Malpais is, well, surprising — most of the landscapes I’ve seen there are either bland or downright scary; almost never colorful.

They aren’t actually olives, but they are on a Russian olive tree in the Rio Grande bosque. Alas, probably the last of the fall colors.
