-? I see just one upright (vertical) pole that's taller than the others, and it's in the front row, right side.

I'm wondering about the purpose of the two tanks of water on the boardwalk, if that's what they are. To give dogs a drink, perhaps–but the water doesn't look at all clean.

There are some nets near the tanks (aquaria?) I suppose they catch things from the pond and keep them alive and visible in the tanks.

That sounds right, thanks. It would explain why the water is pond-color.

I don't take myself seriously. Maybe I should be more seriouser.

Chris these really are impressive. Scenery and photography alike.
I'm curious how long the colours take to fill out across the countryside and then how long it lasts.
I imagine latter has a lot to do with the weather as rain and wind would knock the foliage about.

Certainly is a beautiful natural phenomenon

I really have no idea... I was hiking Corona arch here in Moab one day and ran into some people that live in Durango... I kept in touch and then they gave me the word that it's time to make a trip over (about 2.5 hours) to checkout the color. Honestly in the lower elevations the color was just getting started, but as I drove up higher and higher (towards Silverton and Ouray via the Million Dollar Highway) the color just goes to insanity level. I've never seen anything like it. It's just absolutely insane.

So that was Weds the 29th of September, so I think you get roughly 10-14 days before the leaves drop, but it's not like it happens all at once; You'll see it depends upon elevation. Other factors I've been told are how cold it gets at night, and the preceding weather from the Summer in terms of rain... Trees that are stressed out will drop leaves faster.

Everyone I spoke with in the area said this year was one of the best in many years, so if you can get out there really soon, I doubt you'll be disappointed. If anything, the drive alone is worth it, just make sure you don't have any loose items in the car because there's some insane switchbacks

Here in the northeast United States, the leaf change starts north, and extends down to the south and out to the west and east.
Temperature and humidity of climate play a big roll. In my neck of the woods, we notice that the maples around wetlands start to go crimson before all others.
I was in Crawford Notch yesterday, and that area, north of where I reside, was at about 80% peak colors.

Appreciate it! That's probably it for me though... gonna be busy with work moving forward! So you'll prob just see weekend photos from around Moab on here.

There's some insane fall color photos on instagram of the colorado area, if you can stand the gram...

Personally I like the authenticity on here much better!
