After seeing Arnett Creek was a week or two behind normal, I figured that some higher elevation spots that I had long-since written off might still have some color. Fossil Creek did not disappoint!

Apparently people don't normally think of swimming in December, but the springs produce water at 72 degrees year round, so the swimming was quite pleasant, though it was a little chilly in the shade once out of the water. Nonetheless, it's very nice to enjoy this area when there's nobody else around. We passed the four other people in the two other cars just as we were on our way in, and there wasn't a sign of anybody else all day. :y:

After a couple hours of of swimming and jumping, we took a leisurely photography tour on the way back to the truck and then stuck around until dark to get some late light photos. It was nice to meet Trish, and thank you to Brian for altering my plan of going to Snowbowl for the day, though I'm guessing it's the first time the FC parking lot had a vehicle with a snowboard on it. :)

About a week past peak, but still tons of color in the entire valley. Some cottonwoods were still at prime.
