Fall Along the Trail

These are the colors of fall in the alpine. In the span of a few weeks, the upper treeless slopes of the mountains around Sitka go from green to brown. A closer look sometimes reveals small patches of brighter reds and yellows.

Location: Harbor Mountain-Gavan Hill Trail, near Sitka, Alaska
