Fall Color Wonderland
Don't know how the current pelting rain in the Puget Lowland is going to affect the prospects for someone now getting up there and seeing it before it's over, but the Stevens Pass Highway corridor in Washington was breathtaking yesterday and today. If the mountain weather is any good the next several days (week?) anyone who might like to see it should give it a shot. Particularly on the east side, all the way to Leavenworth the maples, aspens and even the cottonwoods are dazzling.
With redtwig dogwood for contrast on many lower-lying sites.
