Fall colors in Salida

The beautiful fall colors in Salida are are a gradual progression.  I will take a photo every few days to actually see the progression.  The first photo is from September 18, 2015.

Today there is a hint of yellow on the trees but the Arkansas River is spectacular. Mt. Princeton is in background. Notice the lack of snow!

This is a down river shot the same day.  A little yellow can be seen.

Fast forward one week and we have the same blue sky.  The treesF Street Bridge Salida, Colorado
