Red Pine Hike

Owen kept me up for several hours last night/this morning (1:30 - 4:30). He woke up again at 8:30 and was ready to start the day, but I already wanted it to be over. I had to do something to try and re-do it or it was going to be a very long day (and I was going to be very grouchy). Everyone else was still asleep, so I took Owen, the baby wrap, and my camera and we went for a hike. A little bit of time in the mountains just might do the trick and provide the restart I needed
I headed up Little Cottonwood Canyon to the Red Pine trail. I thought I'd go get the valley view of the canyon like last year and see how the colors compared.

Seeing the gray leaves that covered the ground, I think my hypothesis about how the 2 days of fall rain might have killed the colors this year is correct. They all got wet and fell off in the rain before they had a chance to dry in their bright fall colors.
Doesn't hold up to the trail that was paved with gold last year... But these red berries were pretty~
And waterfalls never fail to provide a lovely scene either.

Looking pretty gray... let's put on the vibrant colors setting. That's more like it.
Once I got my picture I headed back down. It was a nice 2 hour restart to my day.
