Our Fall started early, probably due to the drought, but was scrappy at first. Some plants were green, some yellow, and some bare already. But at the end of September we had 3 perfect smoke-free, sunny days and all the remaining leaves turned at once. It was pure sensory overload. The following pictures are in no particular order, all taken between here and Williams Lake with the majority en route to Tatla Lake. It was pure sensory overload.
The small red stuff is either wild rose or dwarf birch. But the aspens are often red here. I have a theory that it is the trees which are more stressed that turn red, either through drought or fire.
And then the colours faded. It was -6C on this morning.
