Wasatch Mountains Big Cottonwood Canyon
Mill D Fork
Mill A Basin
Salt Lake City, Utah
Big Cottonwood Canyon, much like many of the surrounding canyons,
is an excellent lightshow of color every autumn. Aspen trees
are usually the star of the show, with their many yellow, orange
and red leaf variations. Maple leaves are also very dramatic,
colorwise. When fall comes, and the leaves start to change,
this is the place to take a drive, it only lasts for a few weeks,
so don't procrastinate.
