McKittrick Canyon Bigtooth Maples 11

McKittrick Canyon, Guadalupe Mountains

This image from McKittrick Canyon in Guadalupe Mountains National Park focuses on the beautiful fall colors of the bigtooth maples. This ancient population of maples thrives in the wet and cool valley of this canyon, and the red and orange colors explode each fall when colder temps begin to creep into this west Texas landscape.
