Fall Colors 2005 from Ptarmigan - mostly looking at Ruby Ranch
On Saturday Sept. 24 I hiked the flank's of Ptarmigan to get pictures
of Ruby Ranch in fall colors, and to look at last year's beetle kill in
the wilderness (next year will be worse) .
Here is a map
Unfortunately my camera does do justice to the yellows. This is from
the first meadow before you cross into forest land
Looking back toward's Red and the Thorn from the meadows before
entering forest land
This is now from inside forest land looking back at Ruby Ranch with
Buffalo on the left and Red Mt. on the right
Colors rendered somewhat better on this shot.
A good view of the barn in the lower foreground, and looking up
the hike Red-Buffalo pass.
A wider view.
On my way out, I met with the "trooper moms". After taking pictures
with their cameras, I took one with mine and promised I would post it
on the web
Can you see the Ptarmigan in this picture?
One last picture from the first meadow.
