This was taken through the car windshield in motion, so it's a blur. But it kind of looks like an impressionistic painting, doesn't it?
So many pretty colors!
Abigail has a school project where she is supposed to collect and press a bunch of fall leaves and this was the perfect place to do it!! I also read somewhere that you can dip the leaves in paraffin wax and preserve the colors that way, and then use them for decorations. I can't wait to try it!
A rare occasion for a family portrait! And hardly any of the kids are smiling and only a few are looking at the camera, but oh well. At least we are all there!
The mountainside in the last remaining sunlight.
And I loved the sun blazing behind this bright tree. Of course it was even more impressive in real life.
Anyway - so it's autumn in the mountains. The leaves down here in the valley are drying and dying, but not really changing colors yet.
The temps are still in the 80's this week, until on Wed. they are supposed to dip into the 50's and snow in the mountains. And then, I suppose fall might be practically over. See? I told you - fall is too short here.
But I guess I'll take what I can get.
(and does anybody know where I can buy paraffin wax? Walmart doesn't have it) :)
