Heading to Fall

The yellows this season really stand out against the Rockies.

We went for a drive out west of Rocky on Sunday to have a look around.  I thought the contrast of yellow and green was quite striking.

As it is. I so enjoyed my poking and climbing in the Canadian Rockies recently. Fall there was in full swing already.

I miss living somewhere with four distinct seasons.

Lovely picture, cousin! It's amazing how quickly the view can change, isn't it?

Fall comes early to the mountains, Tabor. Where were you?

Carla, I need to see the changes. If I couldn't, I'd lose track of the years.

Thanks, Bag Lady. It's different every day.

Wonderful!
I`m hoping to head out to Siffleur Falls sometime this weekend. I always look forward to that fall contrast!
Happy fall day to you....looks like we are going to get a beautiful one:)

All that color scattered among the evergreens! So pretty!

Dawn, it's been magnificent so far. I hope you make it out to Siffleur soon. It's so gorgeous out there now.

Bossy Betty, it's most eye-catching.

What a lovely sight to greet you as you head down. Around here we have a few trees that actually turn colors, and I savor them.

Very lovely Leah. I have a love/hate relationship with fall, I love the colours and temperatures, but hate what it means for the coming months.

Leah J. Utas said...

Messymimi, it was a welcome, wonderful sight.

Reb, it's a beautiful time. The world has earned its rest.

Those big mountains are really breathtaking. Thanks for this one!

It's my pleasure, Ron.

Beautiful, Reb. You're so lucky to live near such a magnificent area. I started noticing that subtle change in colours as early as August this year. They're becoming quite intense now.. particularly on the way to and from the cottage. Trying to catch up with some missed posts now..

Leah J. Utas said...

Hilary, I sure am.
