Hoover Wilderness Colors (part 1)

Since the U.S. government could go into shutdown mode I figured I could too and took three days off to catch the fall colors around Bridgeport and the Hoover Wilderness.  Car camped and day hiked, a luxury event because I could  pack ( in the car)  lotsa warm clothes, luxurious bedding, a spacious tent, books, a bright lantern and a flatscreen.  The mornings were brisk, in the mid thirties but worth it.  Great light and trails.
