Again this Fall, I followed the peak color transition as it moved from north to south, travelling from southern Wyoming to southern Colorado.

The search for peak fall color began along the Battle Pass Scenic Byway (WY 70) in southern Wyoming. This highway is locally known as “Aspen Alley.”  On the same trip, we travelled along the Laramie River, enjoying the peak fall color.

Continuing south, I visited the area around Crested Butte, and was pleased with the fall display.

The final Fall trip was to the southwest corner of Colorado, between Cortez and Telluride, where we found the best color of the season.

In addition to the fall color display, this season was my first attempt at capturing the Perseid meteor shower.  I camped for two nights during the meteor shower peak and captured over twenty bright meteor trails as they streaked across the northern sky.

I also captured some new images of the Milky Way from dark sky locations.
