Honestly, someone should throw a Halloween party up at this park. Several years ago they burned the trees and new brush has returned. So many of the trees have these dead branches reaching for the sky, all sitting in a bed of autumn-colored scrub brush. It feels a little spooky as you will see by the pictures.
Below the springs just a little ways is a pond area, but the pond has dried up. Although I like this area when water is in it, it is kind of pretty in the fall.
On the east side of the Alpine loop near Sundance, the ferns on the ground are also turning yellow. They blanket the ground beneath the aspen trees in such a spectacularly beautiful way.
