Late September through early October is usually the best time to catch the changing colors of the aspens, cottonwoods and mountain maple. This year was no exception to that rule, though not all trees changed color uniformly.

Before all the leaves had changed color, before we could get our wood in or boats out of the water or take that last hike or climb in the Tetons (or whatever fall rituals you have), not only did it feel like summer was suddenly over, but also autumn was already near its end.

If you've been partaking in the first week of the 35th annual Jackson Hole Fall Arts Festival, you know that it's been a busy first week, with one of the festival's marquee events, the Palates and Palettes Gallery Walk, last Friday.

Continuing that theme, the second weekend is set to even bigger, with a few of the festival's biggest events — the Western Visions Art Show and Sale, the Jackson Hole Art Auction and the QuickDraw Art Sale and Auction — all set to take place. And, if that's not enough, a new upstart, the Jackson Hole Fine Art Fair, will be taking over Snow King Sports and Events Center throughout the weekend.

Also, don't forget to check out the individual shows taking places in galleries across town, showcasing the finest art, sculpture, jewelry and general craft Jackson has to offer. (Check out the calendar in this week's Scene section for a full schedule.)

And if you're just looking for a good read, don't forget to pick up some of the Fall Arts Festival special section's cover stories. The two included in this newsletter, "Outdoor art for all" and "Showing their world," are worth the time. We promise.

Have fun out there and happy art-ing.
