Autumn comes earlier to the high country around Yellowstone and Grand Teton national parks than in most other places around the country. By early October this year, many trees around the region are displaying dramatic blazes of fall color, while some trees have already shed their leaves altogether.

Fall is a quieter time in the parks, with the summer throngs long gone and cooler weather taking hold. For those who haven’t had the opportunity to tour the parks and surrounding areas, we’ve put together a photo gallery showing off some of nature’s glory as seen during the first week of October.

If you have a favorite fall photo from the area, send it to us at info@yellowstonegate.com and we’ll share it with readers.
