I took Deb north for the weekend for her birthday, to chase color and show her some new places. We spent a leisurely day up on the Rim, in the Buck Springs area, an area that has not disappointed in the past. Temps were perfect and the colors once again were poppin'.

We worked our way to the Buck Springs draw, where I noticed a large Elk on the ground. Upon closer examination, it appears this 5 x 5 died from a shot less that perfect from a hunter. My guess is was shot the previous evening.
I later called this in to AZGF who were going to come and get it.

A trip to Buck Springs Cabin and then we made our way back looking for color in the side canyons. One again this area did not disappoint. It's on the autumn rotation.

We stopped at Knoll Lake to check out the Aspens. Most had already lost all of their leaves. Temps dropped to 50 and we had heavy rain and hail on the way out on the Rim Road.

We went back to Payson and enjoyed a great meal at an Italian restaurant called Gerardo's Firewood Cafe.
