This is the time of the year when we share a huge influx of visitors with the New England states. Folks who come to see the changing of the leaves. The color season - as it is known. So far, it hasn't been a very good year. We set out to find some natural beauty earlier this week.
Our favorite place is a dirt road that winds to the top of a mountain. We loved this little fellow showing his best traditional maple color.
Along the way I caught a couple of good areas of color. A country road lighted by filtered sunshine through the bright yellow of the trees.
A view of a nearby mountaintop. I like the contrast of the skeleton trees in the foreground.Although we had not expected much show of color we were pleased that we found it. This is a beautiful place to live year round and we do put on a bit of a show in the fall. Sometimes one has to go find it.
Thanks for looking in.
