    Although you can't go wrong with fall color around Mount Baker & Heather Meadows, I went out searching for someplace else. I decided to take the day off and head up to Rainy Pass on the North Cascades Highway and do the Maple Pass loop.

    Fall color still seems to be 1-2 weeks away from really peaking but there still were great displays if you looked for it. I got many great photos so I might do another thread for some additional photos.

    Hmm. They do show up for me. I did notice that my host (Smugmug) was "down" for maintenance late last night when I originally posted this so the links might have been unavailable during that time.

    Are they still missing?...

    Great photos. I adore the colors. Love the autumn setting and feeling. The first one is especially beautiful.

    The pics show up now.

    These shots are absolutely stunning! Their coloring is just unbelievable! #1 & #2 did it for me. :)

    I like them, but number 6 is outstanding for me. nicely isolated golden leaves embedded in black and dark green.

    Thanks all. #2 is my favorite and I'm glad I was able to pretty much capture what I saw at the time. #6 is also a favorite but it required a little bit of creative composition. The tree is right alongside the highway and unfortunately, there was a highway sign just off frame to the left. If I could have, I would have framed the shot with some more space on either side of the tree. Still works for me! :D

    Very nice series. I specially like #1 for its steady reflection and colors.
