Wellsville fall colors

After crashing out of the Bear, I picked myself up by going for a short hike in the Wellsville Mountains. This range frames Cache Valley on the west side and is covered with bigtooth maple.


The Wellsville Range draped in red maples.

The colors made my jaw drop. I lived in Cache Valley for 10 years and don't remember a better show.

Hobbling through this landscape and seeing the color change as the sunlight fluctuated improved my mood by several hundred percent.
