This year the colors just haven’t seemed as brilliant as expected. Many trees have sported a gorgeous chrome yellow, but very few had the vivid orange and red I’ve come to expect. Here is my maple two years ago, which only turned yellow this year; very disappointing.

Some of the views along the road I walk display lovely autumn scenes, which certainly lift the spirits although they warn of a another rugged winter approaching.
