There is plenty of scenery outside of the State of Utah's national parks. This image is one example of the photo opportunities along Scenic Byway 12 between the towns of Boulder and Escalante. SB 12 passes through spectacular slickrock ridges and canyons, red rock cliffs, pine, aspen and cottonwood forests, alpine scenery, and historical rural towns.
SB 12 highway also has turnoffs for Bryce Canyon National Park and Kodachrome Basin State Park.

These are truly golden leaves at the branches.
The scenery shows a nice variety of barren red rocks and just beside a more fertile ground so that bushes and trees can flourish.
Best regards, Paul

The scenery, here, is truly spectacular.
What contrasts can be seen between the rigid, red cliffs, tall and imposing and the gentle, golden leaves in the f/g.
You have just the right amount of sharpness and colours that seem very natural.
My warm regards,

Most of the Utah should be a National Park, the landscape is stunning wherever you go. And so various, after some kilometers is something quite different. I remember similar rocks near Escalante. And there was a piece of the road with precipies on both sides. I was scared there :). Nice with the autumn trees.
Warm regrad s MAlgo

There are some fabulous colors in this scenery. It's a fairly straightforward composition but you arranged it neatly with a line of pink bushes at the bottom. The yellow trees are amazing and create a kind of buffer zone between the pink bushes and the pink rocks. A fantastic view.

I guess we all drive similar cars along similar roads, but a scene like this shows the difference around the world in what we see along the way. I am used to green, green and more green, trees and woods and rivers and lakes. This is such a contrast to that, and a beautiful one too. I know I harp on about the colors in this place, but they really are amazing, and help nicely balance the green overdose my eyes are suffering from!
Thanks as always
