Autumn in December

This shot was taken off of Dead Coyote Hill, as I was hiking back to the Dragonfly Trail. It’s hard to tell from the photo, but between where I was standing and the distant hill, there is a deep canyon where Cave Creek runs. The creek runs almost year round, so the cottonwood trees that grow along side of it are well nourished. Because of central Arizona’s warm weather, the leaves usually don’t change color until after Thanksgiving. In this case, it was mid-December.

  1. I’ve been wandering through your new format and am only just beginning to understand how you’ve put it together. It’s a lovely hike for an old geezer like me. Thanks for sharing it.
