Flameleaf Sumac Turning Colors 0647

As a one-day detour from the pictures documenting my five-day trip to the Trans-Pecos, here’s a view of the most reliable fall foliage Austin residents can expect to see near the end of each calendar year. You’re looking at a prairie flameleaf sumac, Rhus lanceolata, late in the afternoon on a clear, warm, and warmly lit December 4 in northwest Austin.
