Still Green

There are still several aspen trees along Last Dollar Road that haven't even begun to change.

That is so interesting. I wonder why the difference; why some change right away and others take much longer? Maybe the difference is due to altitude?

I guess they like to take their time. Maybe they are saving the best for last!

We've had a lot of rain in September, so maybe that is making the green stay around longer.

My experience with Telluride "leaves" is the peak is around the first week of October.

2004 was a good year. http://www.flickr.com/photos/michaelmowerymedia/sets/72157605943095038/

Looking at the dates, the most dramatic ones were around that week.

Always, enjoyed your photos Lisa....

Maybe they are waiting for their Last Dollar? hehe!

Beautiful road. I'd like to just ride a horse down it as the aspens change color to yellow and begin to flutter in the cool winds.

It's lovely to know an area so well that you notice the progress of individual trees towards autumn.
