We started the backpacking trip a little late in the day but were surprised and impressed by the fall colors.

Our home for two nights was next to Roaring Waters Creek, but far away from it.

We had this beautiful orange-gold wall along the north side of our campsite.

On the second day we took an off-trail hike high above Paradise Park.  Mt. Jefferson is about 60 miles away to the south.

The trail and Mt. Hood on our way out early in the day.
