NICE ride report and pics Dave. I found the link on the murals thread. My wife and I were ahead of you about a month. All the Aspen higher up in your photos with no leaves left were bright yellow for us. And the yellow you captured was still green for us.
I take all my pics with a Sony / DSC-HX5V point and shoot. It does pretty good, but I don't doctor up the photos after shooting them. It's an art that I might need to explore. I also need to stop more and take the time to frame more shots. 99 % of my pics are rolling shots. Most of them are not cropped.
Thanks for quality. KEN
