Just a touch of Fall

Clark Fork Valley

Today I took a brief hike, just a few miles, to check the status of the autumn leaves. They are very late compared to the last few years, just a few isolated trees turning color so far, but the cold front that is now moving in should serve to accelerate their progress. That makes a great excuse for returning in a couple of weeks.

This photo was taken from a few miles past the gate on the old road that leads to Mexican Saddle and Penrose Peak in the Coeur d’Alene Mountains. The deep canyon cutting into the Cabinet Mountains across the Clark Fork River is the Munson Creek canyon and the Eddy Creek canyon is in the foreground.
