Daily Postcard: Fall Colors Brighten Bandelier

Daily Postcard: Fall color surrounds the village of Tyuonyi in Bandelier National Monument. October at Bandelier brings warm days while the nights are cool to downright cold. The first snow of the season near the visitor center often happens around Halloween with earlier snow in the park’s high country. Migrating cranes can be heard flying north overhead and male tarantulas may be encountered on the ground as they wander around searching for love. Photo by Sally King
