Saturday we spent some time in and around Black Canyon Cove and the Black Canyon Trail which is across Lakeshore Drive just east of the cove. I never fail to find something new, even after being in some of these areas dozens of times. The sun was warm and it was a beautiful morning. We didn't walk too much, my wife's step counter said a bit over 3,000 steps.
This is a great time of the year to experience the park, not too hot, not a lot of people and a good chance to get out and do something.

|The trail less taken - the start of Black Canyon Trail|
|With much of the smoke cleared away the Peak once again looks spectacular|
|Forested area on the trail|
|Died of old age?|
|Cottonwoods are starting to show fall colors|
|Still some nice color in the park|

This is also the area I am using for my blog photo at the top of this page
