Two knitting buddies joined me on a half-day trek to Union Pass to see check out the fall colors...and to have lunch in Dubois.
Driving up to the top of Union Pass turned out to be interesting...but not necessarily vibrant with color. In fact, we only saw one hillside that was photo worthy. Much of the road is lined with pine trees. Unfortunately, we commented several times about how sad it is to see so much beetle-killed pine in this area, and it's only a matter of time before a lightening strike starts Mother Nature's natural clean-up process. Even with the moisture we've received lately, it looks very dry.
Here are some photos of the aspen on a hillside not far from the Line Shack.
