Well, the leaf painters have been at work along the West Fork Trail. We got on the trail at 9 am after being one of the last cars into the parking lot. Didn't expect to see this many folks on the trail for a Tuesday, but everyone was pretty well spread out along the its length.

Now is the time for "leaf-peeping" as it is referred to in New England. So get thyself to the West Fork. Some trees are past their peak, some at their peak, and some yet to peak. All told, it's probably optimum now, but should continue past the weekend. I think most of the red maples may be "well done" by then (should I say "put a West Fork" in them? Ok, I won't), but yellow and goldens will be taking their place. After hiking to where you have to take to the water about 3.8 miles in, with many, many stops to capture the sights on film (oops, my age is showing, I mean on digital media), we headed back to the trailhead. Then on to lunch in Sedona before returning to the valley.

All told, a great day. I'll post some pictures tomorrow
