You can see it out of the corner of your eyes - the autumn color changes are beginning in the Bitterroot Valley.

The usual "early changers" for trees include the Daly Mansion maple trees along the entrance lane. Of course, some of the smaller bushes and non-native trees are already jumping into the color switch (see photo).

The weather is in a surge of cool, moist conditions this week, with summer-like conditions returning for the weekend of September 28. We'll be looking around for some good photo opportunities.
