Golden fall foliage

November Hikes

As mid-November frosts move in, the landscape begins to fade. The trees and understory have lost their rich hues. The creek water is steel gray. The grasses are tan.

It’s hard to believe that only last week, the colors were riotous. I looked around me and thought that I had never seen such vivid golds, oranges, and reds against the robin’s egg-blue sky.  Fall had finally arrived.

It took just one hard frost to change everything. Yet, that is what it’s all about. The Weepies got it right: Same Changes.

Against the sparkling sky
Golden colors in autumn woods
The yellows and golds shine against the damp wood
fallen leaves coat the woods, trail, and roadway

The fungi offer color and pattern.

Even purple makes an appearance.

Wouldn’t have seen this guy, but for the hop!

The rain brings a change in weather and color.

Enjoy these last weeks of autumn!
