The Rubies in August (with my son getting ready for his fall archery hunt).
Sept. 23, 2013 – the top of the canyons are brushed with yellow patches as the leaves begin to change color.
October 7, 2013 – Two weeks later, the trees have almost completely changed their colors.
October 10, 2013 – the first dusting of snow on the peaks. Ruby Dome, to the right of the pyramid peak, is the tallest point in the mountain range with an elevation of 11,388.
October 15, 2013 – The leaves are dropping and the mountain tops are whiter.
October 19, 2013
Oct. 29 – Winter arrives. We woke to heavy wet snow.
Oct. 29 – The weather here can make a person crazy. Blizzard at 7:00 am…beautiful sun shining on the snowy mountains at 5:05 pm of the same day.
Oct. 29 – the same day, 20 min. later, clouds are moving in again across the mountains. Winter is here, and the leaves are gone.
