We arrived in the area early enough to go for a nice day hike on Friday, deciding to turn back shortly before getting to Horse Camp.

The weather looked ok most of the morning, and the snow from the night before caked the surrounding mountains on the drive in, but as the day went on, it got darker and the skies eventually opened up on us.

While most would consider it to be an annoyance, the rain just makes this canyon even more special. The water turned turbid as the flow in the canyon increased a few cfs. More impressive, though, was the flow into the canyon from numerous waterfalls from high above. Some reached heights of several hundred feet. While the flows were generally light, it was a real treat to see all these drainages with water flowing.

Autumn Foliage Observation Substantial
I'll give it a substantial over moderate. It's past prime for sure (seems early this year based on past observations), but there is still plenty of color to be found, including a few isolated cottonwoods that are still largely green. Still plenty of cottonwoods that are virtually bare too. But the resulting leaf litter on the ground is a nice consolation prize.
