On 09/30/2017 Jim Herring, Connie and I made a daytrip of driving around the 57,442 acre Mt. Charleston Wilderness Area. The purpose of our trip was to locate and photograph some Quaking Aspen (Populus tremuloides) trees and have a picnic lunch. Due to recent drops in temperatures, we guessed that it was about time for the broad trembling leaves of these white-barked deciduous trees to be turning. As you will see from the pictures in this post, we guessed the right time. If you want to enjoy these fall colors, I would suggest that you make a trip to here within the next several days.
