from Thursday to Tuesday

I was amazed at the difference in the aspens between my arrival at Rocky on Thursday to my Tuesday departure date. It appears that I arrived just in time to see peak colors. I saw the transition from bright yellow to stark white tree trunks and branches.

The two photos below were taken in close to the same spot, with the tree just to the right of center in the top shot sitting on the left side of the photo on the bottom. The photo on the top was taken on Thursday. The photo on the bottom was taken the following Tuesday.
