Chasing the Fall colors in this part of Arizona is all about timing. This color may only last a few weeks. I'd made a trip of here the week before and turned around but on this trip. I hit peak. I hiked in the dark, temps in the 30's and a very very cold Oak Creek. I hiked in almost 6 miles to photograph an area I'd not seen before with the colors and in the cold darkness, I accidentally fell into a pool. A multitude of clothing layers, down jacked, extra hiking boots ...soaking wet and freezing. I shot as much as I could before I needed to move to keep warm and as the sun lit up the forest canopy and I walked through here, I thought how delicious the sunrise felt and how beautifully the warm sun colored and lit up the ...path.
