With the weather dropping to temperatures in the 20s and 30s, celebrate the beautiful fall season we’ve had by watching drone footage of Utah’s beautiful fiery red mountains. On Sept. 23, aerial photographer Eric Kerr posted a reel on Instagram of fall foliage in Utah, getting over 24,000 likes.
One commenter said, “Wow those reds are popping!!! Never thought about leaving CO for fall colors (besides going to the NE) but will have to look into UT.”
