Every fall, nature turns to thoughts of color as the changing of the weather forces trees to drop their leaves. The buildup of sugars in the leaves paints them red, orange and yellow when the nights dip below the freezing mark for the first time. Driving through the mountain pastures, especially Hart Prarie near Flagstaff, Arizona, one is flooded with visions of color unmatched at any other time of the year. Each fall we pack up our equipment and head to the high country, Colorado, Northern Arizona and Utah, to catch the color show before returning to the lower deserts as the changes follow the temperatures south.
