From where I stopped on the Beaton Road, I drove on to the Upper Southwest Mabou Road and turned right, heading for Glencoe Mills. About 2 km (1.2 mi) northwest of Long Johns Bridge, I came across the flaming red tree seen in photo #1. While a little bit of gold and occasionally green touches some of its leaves, the red is reflecting the morning sun very nicely indeed!
Photo #2 shows the trees along the left (north) side of the road, including the red tree seen in photo #1. This view makes clear that this red tree was exceptional indeed, as most of its neighbours are either unchanged or in the very early stages of changing.
Photo #3 shows the trees along the other side of the road; here, more reds are showing and more trees are further along, but nothing so wonderful as the red tree on the other side of the road is in view.
