Autumn

It’s heee-eerrree!

Welcome to my favorite time of year!

In a few short weeks, the colors of Fall will be painting the trees and shrubs.

The farmers will be out in their fields harvesting their crops.

And there will be a refreshing crispness in the air.

So I thought I’d share a few photos from my trek around during peak colors last year:

Clearly it’s not just my favorite season – other people do get awfully poetic this time of year!

Get ready to go out and enjoy what Mother Nature has to offer!

Thanks for stopping by – have a great day!!

Photowalk 27

A few days ago I went for a hike and everything was in beautiful shades of gold.

So apparently, I was hiking at the end of a rainbow (get it? because of all the gold! haha!)

ahem…

Well, anyway, after the recent snow and subsequent leaves-turning-brown-and-falling-off-the-trees-way-too-soon (which makes me feel a bit Autumn-cheated), I thought I’d share my hike with you.

I started down this path:

and found myself here:

and looked up and saw:

and finished my hike here:

Have you ever seen such amazing golden foliage?

Reds have a tendency to catch my eye as they show off their vibrance, but this was so beautiful to walk under and through.

I was awed.

But alas (<– I love that word!), soon I will be waxing poetic about snow…
