Happiness is Fall

Happiness is Fall

I love the fall, growing up in the Northeast fall was always the time of year that I spent the most time in nature.  In the fall, the temperatures are cooler, there are fewer bugs, animals are on the move and the trees explode into amazing demonstrations of just how beautiful nature can be.  I no longer live in the Northeast, currently I live in the desert and you don’t quite get the same changes there.

However this week I’ve been in the Pacific Northwest and recently drove from Seattle over to Spokane and Coeur d’Alene.  While doing that drive I had the pleasure of driving through the Wenatchee Forest.  Now it didn’t quite have the fire of the fall in Vermont or upstate New York, but it was spectacular.

The green of the pines, with the gold of the Aspens and Oaks, little patches of red, all framed against steep mountains with low clouds floating through the valleys, it was absolutely magnificent.  There were no good spots to pull off and take pictures so for tonight’s post I’ve resorted to the web to give you all a glimpse of what it looked like.  Enjoy and have a happy day my friends ~ Rev Kane
