Last year I did some scouting trips along Sweet Creek to explore the trails along the set of waterfalls from the various trailheads in the canyon. Once peaceful scene I encountered last January was an alder grove that straddled the creek and I decided a revisit would be in order when the trees weren't bare. I thought it might be interesting to compare the scene between the mid winter shot and one I took a few weeks ago. For the record - don't ask me about juicing up fall colors - alders don't have fall colors and there were no visible yellows in the scene at all. January: October: C&C always welcome.
