A sign of Fall is not always something you can take a photograph of, such as how suddenly your fingers are freezing in the morning when it was just 70F the day before, or the equal amounts of daylight and darkness. You can take a picture of being able to see your breath, but it’s not exactly easy to time it just right.
Fall officially started last Tuesday, but this tree was already starting to turn for the last few weeks!
Gold! The Chantrelle mushroom usually comes out in September and October, after some of the fall rains have come. This year they’re a bit early, but not a moment too soon in our opinion! They’re delicious!
Dogs posing for a quick picture. They love getting to explore when we go mushroom picking.
This last picture is more about the color than the actual bird and that one actually landed twenty feet from me. As you can see from the color of the cones on the fir trees in the background, the sun has a beautiful reddish tint that only seems to come when there’s smoke from a forest fire, or in fall sunrises. It’s simply beautiful. The bird is a Pileated Woodpecker (known to some as a Shaggy-headed Woodpecker.
