Nice photo of Engineer Pass (or thereabout), Sergei. Was that on the east side? I find the colors more interesting compared to Cinnamon Pass which always seems barren to me. Did you do Cinnamon and American Basin as well?
We have reports from some of our locals, who have been up to Lake City and Creede area, that the Aspens and Cottonwoods are already changing color.
We are expecting that the trees will be turning around here, Pagosa Springs, by next weekend since that area is always about a week ahead of ours. We are already seeing some Cottonwood change. That puts this year's leaf change about 10 days ahead of the usual schedule.
