Fall Color & Oak Creek Canyon

After leaving Flagstaff a couple weeks back, we dropped down into Oak Cree Canyon and through Sedona. Up in Flag, the scrub oaks were fairly yellow, but the aspens were just beginning to turn color. This maple? had some interesting patterns in its leaves. (Click on the picture to see this close up).

It is amazing that anything can grow on these steep slopes. By the way, match where the rocks start in the lower left quarter in the photo above with the upper right portion of the photo below to see how really deep this canyon is.
