What a great time of the year and what a pristine place to view some of the remaining color that fall so humbly bestows upon us.  It’s a real treat to be able to wander along the roads of the eastern Sierra for just one purpose; observing the beauty of nature’s change of season.  The bright and alive green of summer slowly starts to change and before long becomes a vibrant, intense explosion of yellows and gold’s with just a touch of everlasting green, adding just the right amount of contrast to the road less traveled.  There were not many people traversing this patch of roadway on this day.  That’s just fine with me.  It makes this little stretch of heaven just that much more inviting.

I don’t pretend to be a tour guide or advocate for any particular destination.  Thus, I have no idea who the artist of this particular sculpture is or even what it depicts.  Guess that leaves more for the imagination.  I see two young, innocent, angelic cupids resting and hiding in the leaves.  They’re ready to give their blessings as you walk by.  Maybe you’ll even stop and rest, sit on a bench nearby.  They’ll pierce you in the heart.  Your love of life and other will deepen.  What do you see?

Of all the times I’ve been up to the Sierra Nevada mountains, I’d never been there just to see the fall colors.  I guess it seemed too touristy without taking the time and energy to do some serious hiking.  Well, this time there was very little hiking and a lot of “leaf peeping” as I’ve heard it called.  Photography was the major interest and activity.  And all I can say is, Wow!  What an incredible place to go and be!  Vivid color with brilliant contrasting blue skies.  I was as giddy as a kid in an candy store.

Yes, it’s still fall so I thought I’d keep posting some other fall images.  I like fall.  It’s like an ending to the year.  Everything changes in nature and falls away.  A big exhale…  And yet water levels usually rise.  Like here.  Whatcom creek spilling and churning.  The verdant evergreens remaining stately, and even shining forth more noticeably as the leaves on the deciduous trees continue to shed.  The ground turns wet and moist, ideal for the growth of mushrooms.  The quiet of the trees, the roaring of the water.  What a lovely season.

I was traipsing around in the woods one day, looking for mushrooms.  Yes, I did see a few, but it wasn’t quite wet enough to find and gather any of the edible kind.  What I did find, of consequence, though, is color.  The beautiful golden yellow color that is autumns trademark.  Mixed in with the evergreens green and the quiet semi-dampness of the growing fall season, I found myself in a surprisingly pleasant and peaceful state of being.  At first I was disappointed at not finding any mushrooms of significance, but then I looked around and noticed what was there.  Such a simple thing that is sometimes so elusive.
