    Sounds good. I just didn't want to explain or share locations when we are there like you have never been there then if you had been there.

    Sorry to hear about your knee, Alan. Hope it's something that can be (at least partially) fixed. Glad to know you have tons of locations close to you.

    I will be around Brian Head & Richfield, UT 3rd week in Sept, then heading through Eastern Sierras to visit my sister in the Bay Area, then up to Bend to see a friend, coming back maybe through the Sawtooths, definitely Wyoming end of Sept. Just 1 1/2 - 2 1/2 day trips after that in Colorado.

    Chondromalacia patella. Knee brace and PT for the next 6 weeks. I will try to sneak in some short trips in between PT sessions.

    Not so bad -- annoying and painful, but surgery not required.

    Correct - but it threw a wrench into my plans for fall leaves.

    For Colorado, although I think these predictions might be a little early.

    Is this based on forecasts from this years weather or from historical data?

    That seems horribly early!

    You are our eye in the storm Amy! I am hoping you can make trips down to the Dallas Divide every 5 days or so and give us updates. :rolleyes:

    These are the best projections available based on a number of factors, including peak observation trends, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) historical temperatures, NOAA historical precipitation, NOAA forecast temperatures, NOAA forecast precipitation, and historical leaf peak trends.
