SnowFall

Before Fall Colors have even popped yet, we got our first snowfall.  Fall Colors dropped against the blanket of fresh snow made the maple leaves in their varying color stand out.

I love the contrast of color Fall brings, with the green Pines, yellowing Oaks, and emerging reds amidst the scattered Maples.  It’s a potpourri of color and textures.

The snow just adds another dimension in this already gorgeous time in our myriad of seasons we get to enjoy.

Fall is in the air

We went out to check on Fall Colors, but it’s still a little early for this neck of the woods.  Maybe next week will yield more color.

For now, we were happy to walk through the woods and take in the crisp air… as was this little squirrel we found.

Winter is coming.  Storms are on the horizon, and we have already had our first snow.  We’ll take it.   Our burnt forest can certainly use a good soaking.

We’ll make another trek next week to check on colors again.  It’s all good.

Grand Canyon North Rim

It’s true that the South Rim is closer than the North Rim… by a bunch!  But, give me the North Rim any day.  The views are better, and the crowds less (that by itself is reason enough).

We enjoyed the many overlooks and stunning views along the way.

The aspen leaves were turning and the fall colors were stunning.  The roads and the hillsides were covered with their golden hue.
