I hope to get back up to this area this weekend and see some of this color in person :-)
(if color is not past peak, that is)
Thanks for the kind words. Based on what I saw, you'll still have luck if you show up in a few days. Only about two thirds of the trees had turned. Hopefully they'll stick around for you.
I like how the color just pops out like that with the backlight (or sidelight). Looks like a beautiful area.
Thanks! We showed up on just the right weekend and arrived on the summit at just the right hour. I'm sure that you can't go wrong at any time of the the year, though -- it's gorgeous.
