Went to West Fork on Friday to try and beat the crowds, as if that is possible when the fall colors are out! We hit the trail at 5:30 to make it past the subway for some photos during the power hour, only to find that many of the trees past the subway area were already bare :-({|= . It looks like the cold front that blew through last week zapped the leaves pretty good, as about 75% of the maples have already shed their leaves. There was however more than enough color remaining to make the trip up worthwhile. The colors seem to be concentrated near the canyon walls, perhaps because those trees are more protected from the wind. We made our way back slowly with lots of exploring and a couple of naps to boot.
