Five Shots: Last Greens of Summer

Cool temperatures and blue skies had us in the car heading north today to see if the Aspen leaves had turned. The scenic drive from Sedona up to Flagstaff is one of the prettiest scenic drives around. At Flagstaff, we hiked around Hart Prairie where a frost burnt the ferns and the Aspens were still green. Then we drove over to Garland Prairie to see if the fields of flowers were blooming, but we were too late, the flower stalks were black and wilted. Even though our timing was off, to catch leaves and flowers in their glory, Jim, Bear, and I enjoyed the pleasant weather. Which shot do you like best?
