Peak!


I don't usually have my camera in the car with me.  Much less snap photos from the car.  But over the last week the trees in my neck of the woods have suddenly changed and the mountainsides are ablaze with color.  And it just so happened that one day I DID have my camera for the ride home.




Almost home.  You can see the roof and top part of our barn in the above photo.  Look at those mountains behind our house. Oooooo-eeeee!




Home sweet home.  In glorious autumn splendor.

The leaves here started to change and they are getting prettier every day. Autumn was definitely a perk when I went to college in the mountains. Beautiful.

We have some pretty trees round here too..wish there was more vibrancy,but we aren't far enough up North. Not complaining though as we didn't have any in AZ! Thanks for sharing this beautiful time of the year!

Beautiful! One of the first years I won't get "out west" to see the colors. :( We have some very pretty stuff here but not quite as nice as yours.

Kar said...

Lucky girl to have all that gorgeous color surrounding you! And to have those pretty rolling hills is pretty darn awesome. :)

Oh, Dana!! Pretty pretty pretty. I woke up to a car frozen shut with the rain and then snow that fell yesterday and through the night. Also beautiful but less cheery. lol.

Very, very pretty. Autumn colors are so beautiful. We have had the most amazing autumn too with weeks and weeks if deep, glorious colors but we had a storm last week that took off most of the leaves :(

Grand colour! The trees in Washington state mostly go golden, then brown so it isn't such a grand show. We need to steal some red maples from you!

I miss the colours of the East. Sadly our leaves are gone and so is the colour. Well they were replaced with the colour white.....SNOW.

The mountain tops are just gorgeous. All the way to your house. The leaves here have changed and sre falling at an almost alarming rate. I like them to last a while.
Happy Fall

What a beautiful part of the world you live in! It's so different to my home (and most of Australia really!). The colour on the mountains is beautiful.
