Fire, Walk with Me

With the exception of non-native maples, autumn colors in this part of the Rocky Mountains largely exclude all those striking shades of red. Thus, when I saw this rowan tree—misleadingly coral from far away—I was convinced that it was another imported maple. When I got closer, however, I realized that this mirage was created by its numerous sangria berries that somehow blended with its orange leaves resulting in the appearance of being on fire.

This is what kids call "Nature For-The-Win."
