Fall on the North Fork

Cool during the days and cold in the evenings, we’ve been enjoying some glorious North Fork fall days.  Here are some pictures that don’t begin to do the North Fork justice.

First indication that winter is coming is the snow on the Rockies.

Then the aspens start to turn.  Here is a shot along the North Fork Road near Ford.

Next to turn will be the larches, but they’ve not yet begun.  Here’s a shot of the view up the North Fork river.  Notice how the wind has picked up the snow on the top of the mountain behind and is blowing it to the East.

Lots of snow, aspens turning, and the river

We took advantage of this beautiful fall day to play hooky from work and go to visit Amy who is on forced furlough from her work in the Park because of the government shutdown.  She and Morgan got into an intense discussion about Obamacare.

Here are some more shots from various points along the road.

There is also work to be done.  Everyone is getting in their wood for the winter.

Finally, what would fall be without the “soup-and-sing.”  Here are some shots from the one Debo hosted this year.
