I was reminded last week that I haven't done a photo-heavy Ten Things of Thankful list in a while, so I determined to capture in pictures the beauty of the fall season. John, youngest daughter, and I headed up Provo Canyon to see the colorful display of the changing leaves. We saw not only trees, but animals, a waterfall, and other things that caught my eye. Hope you enjoy!
|Photo: A forest of red, orange, and yellow-leaved oak and maple trees is dotted by the occasional evergreen tree, with the majestic rocky Wasatch mountain range in the background. Fluffy white clouds float in the blue sky.
|Photo: A doe (a deer, a female deer) crosses a dirt road. On either side of the road are oak and maple trees, shrubs, and grasses.
|Photo: A canopy of trees with small green and yellow leaves stretches over a paved walking path. A wooden rail fence marks the right side of the path.
|Photo: A blossom of a tree. The flower has white, wispy, hair-like pieces flowing from a yellowish center. I'm sorry I don't know what kind of a plant it is--a reverse Google image search suggested, "Flower."

|Photo: Bridal Veil Falls tumbles over the rocky face of the mountain. An aspen tree, with green and yellow leaves, stands in the foreground on the left.
|Photo: A small maple, with burnt-orange/reddish leaves, stands in the foreground, with the Utah valley in the background.
|Photo: A chipmunk uses its hind feet to grab onto a vertical tree limb, while clutching its front feet together.
|Photo: A white-barked, still mainly green-leaved aspen tree.
