Le rouge et le noir in Utah *
On October 23rd of last year we followed Kolob Terrace Rd. northward in and out of the western side of Zion National Park. Eventually we got to the Kolob Reservoir and the grove of bare aspen trees you’ve already seen, but before then we stopped for the fall color shown here. While I didn’t pay attention to the dark trunks then, now they make me think a fire had passed through that area.
How different this is from the scenes of autumn in central Texas that you saw last time.
* Le rouge et le noir, or The Red and the Black, is the title of a novel by Stendhal.
