Brilliant fall colors on the Latourell Falls trail.
Upper Latourell Falls
Large yellow leaves decorate the forest
The Gorge is a patchwork quilt of color when viewed from above.
Lower Latourell Falls
Sheppard's Dell Falls
The Wahkeena Falls area is a large blast of color.
Leaves caught in the current of the stream.
Wahkeena Falls and the leaf-strewn pathway.
Fairy Falls -one of my favorite Gorge waterfalls.
Even Bear stops to admire the fall colors along the trail.
Sadly, fall never lasts long enough. It is a short couple of weeks, and then the trees are bare. But I did get a couple of good weekend hikes at the peak of the color. My photos will have to tide me over........ until next year!
