Arizona Ash Turned Yellow by Cliffs 9118

Above is a closer look at some Arizona ash trees, Fraxinus velutina, turning bright yellow along TX 17 between Balmorhea and Fort Davis on November 19. Once again cliffs serve as a backdrop.

Below is a still-closer look at this kind of tree on the following day along TX 118 just north of the town of Fort Davis.

And here’s an even closer look from the same stretch of road as the last.

I’d better stop closing in and just close.
