The last 2 years Emily has been out here in October. It's become tradition to take a drive up to Park City to a secret spot and get photos. 2013 here (Evelyn was only one week) and 2012 here.
Unfortunately, our secret spot was totally disappointing. It was brown and dead. But our detour up Lamb's Canyon on the way up was the highlight as far as leaves and colors are concerned. Photos don't do justice.
We also stopped at the Park City Scarecrow Walk and had an impromptu photo shoot by the big white barn while the kids were playing. (Oh and we may or may not have done some shopping at the outlets.) I think this might just be my favorite leaf peeping adventure yet.
