Autumn is coming up, and we are in full swing with our season.  Many of the Moab locals consider this to be the prime time of year.  Gorgeous blue days and cooler temperatures.  The turning colors of the desert cottonwoods and other shrubs complements the desert red.  The cottonwoods aren’t the only plant that sports fall yellow — there are some  wildflowers that stake out their blooming territory now as well.
