Autumn Leaves...

"Swinging on delicate hinges, the autumn leaf almost off the stem."
Jack Kerouac

Fall is coming and going quickly up here...
The color just barely started, and already the leaves are turning brown
and dropping quickly...

Something about an early freeze, too much or not enough sugar in the leaves...
the gist of it is, fall color seems to be especially fleeting this year...

Sharing with Skywatch Friday...


  1. Hi there - great colours. We had two days of spring this week, but its back to winter now!

    Just in time for week off work!

  2. The colors are pretty, just a shame it is not lasting longer. Gorgeous scenery and photos.

  3. Beautiful colors! The seasons are so intense at high altitude.

  4. They are both very nice photos! When I enlarged them they were fantastic, especially the second one.

  5. Thanks all!!! The color is a bit sparser than last year and won't last as long..but maybe that means we'll have a better snow year than last year too!!!
