The days are getting cooler, and there is a chill in the air at night. Winter is right around the corner. While the desert isn’t as famous for its fall colors as back in Maine, you can find gorgeous colors if you know where to look.
Explore the riparian canyons and you will find the brilliant oranges of the sycamores, and the bright yellows of the cottonwoods and walnuts. If you venture up the sky island mountains to the pine and fir forests you will find the brilliant reds of the maples and shimmering yellows of the aspen.
