More Fall Colors

This is a rare sight in the Phoenix area. We don't often see leaves that turn red. They usaually turn yellow and then fall to the ground. I took this and yesterday's photos about a week ago. Since then, we've had a rain storm with a lot of wind. When I pass this tree now, it's almost bare.

Glad you caught this one and yesterday's shot before the rain came!

A beautiful maple tree! Photos like that were taken back in mid-October in Minnesota!

This is indeed an unusual sight for Phoenix. You caught a little bit of Camelback Mountain in the background, perhaps to satisfy any skeptics that this is indeed Phoenix.

It's amazing how fast nature can change its look this time of the year!
