Clouds are a nice addition to images. So I headed up to Lockett Meadow to see what I could find in hopes of the clouds being "just right" for an afternoon, evening image of Fall Colors. I started bushwhacking up a nearby peak but the clouds just kept filling in the top of the valley. The Peaks and their snow never did come out of hiding. The sun did however shine around the storm clouds and the north side of the San Francisco Peaks to skip across the cinder cones, Gray Mountain and the North Rim of the Grand Canyon.
Earlier on my scramble up the rocky side the clouds did open up for a moment.
This burned tree trunk from a fire a few years ago looked like a Yeti took a couple of bites out of it.
And of course, there was an old Ent, telling all those young Aspen trees to bring on their color!
