Photo gallery: Mother Nature’s fall colors are on full display

For many of us, fall in Utah is the perfect season with temperatures often not too hot and not too cold. Throw in bluebird skies and sunshine and Utah’s fall season becomes truly remarkable.

And with the arrival of autumn, Mother Nature is once again showing off her true beauty with spectacular colors in Utah’s mountains.

Our Deseret News photojournalists spent time up in the mountains, from East Canyon, up both Millcreek and Big Cottonwood Canyons to the Alpine Loop over the last few days capturing the stunning array of colors.
