Big color

Prolonged warm weather has stretched out the length of my favorite time of year and rewarded us with some spectacular views of fall foliage colors in Minnesota.  Click on any of the images below to get a larger (full-screen) view.

Mississippi River fall color

Vibrant reds along the Mississippi River on warm falls days that you wish would never end.

Maples and birches on the bluffs lining the Mississippi River were brilliant with color.

The canopy of maple leaves closed over the trail in one of the Mississippi River ravines, making the whole scene golden.

A yellow flame (Norway Maple) in an oak forest in early morning light — what a contrast.

Fall — I wish it could go on and on.  What a treat for the eyes as we prepare ourselves mentally to face another winter.
