Fall Colors

The Canyons of the Wasatch Mountains are so beautiful this time of year with their spectacular golds, yellows, orange and reds of the oak, maple aspen and cottonwood trees. But canyons don't have a monopoly on the colors, yesterday I spent most of the day out at Farmington bay and took some pictures of the fall colors in the wetlands. The Salicornia (pickle-weed) is in full bloom and is no less colorful than the mountain trees. The cattails are also blooming and bursting their cotton. Here are a few pictures also including some Marbled Godwits and Greater and Lesser Yellow-legs and Long-billed Dowitchers
