Palmer Reservoir Hike

Last Sunday I went for a hike to Palmer Reservoirs. There was a little sunlight filtering through clouds, but I wasn't able to get the great fall foliage photos I wanted, but this is what I got. I'll start by showing the smaller of the two dams, which people have painted - I'm linking it to the Monday Mural meme.
Of course I have to show the reservoir, even if the light was flat making for marginal photos.
Just off the trail I saw this view, looking up a steep hill.
Here's another bush that was changing colors.
And of course, the aspen grove which was my destination.
A lot of leaves had already fallen - this low shot was my favorite from the hike.

  7. Our color at altitude is mostly gone, though today on a hike, one lone aspen glowed. I was interested in the paintings on the reservoir - graffiti or was it allowed?

  8. Are these murals officially allowed? We in Auckland just condemned a prolific graffiti tagger.

  9. All beautiful views, but I'm partial to birches:)
    Whatever light it is, it's the subject that matters:):)

  12. As long as I can see the Aspens I'm happy. Beautiful beautiful post. Wish you could hold on to the color until the end of November! Our son and DIL aren't promising anything.
