Wanted to find fall color with water involved without the crowds and I knew this area would offer some potential.

Upon reaching Washington Park my eyes caught a flame of red along the creekbed and I instantly knew I made the right decision.

I wanted to stretch my legs and check out the display further up so I decided to head on up to the RR tunnel since it was so close.
It was cool to finally see the tourist tunnel but unfortunately has so much graffiti coated on the walls of the entrance.

Temperatures on the rim have been absolutely perfect lately, comfortably warm during the day and nice and cool once the sun starts to set.
The remainder of the evening was spent underneath the canopy of foliage taking photos of one of the best displays of water and fall colors I have personally experienced.

Maples, Oaks, Sycamores and even some Aspens in the upper elevations are all rocking with color.
Some past prime but yet side by side next to green, rather strange foliage patterns.

Running water and pools stop exactly at .6 miles above Pieper Hatchery Spring.
