Fall...

I love fall.

I love a crisp fall day where it's too cold to be out without a sweater, but there is still a little bit of warmth left from the sun. I love the distant smell of burning leaves and firewood. I love that the summer hordes are in decline.

I'm lucky to live in one of those places that people travel to to wonder at the majesty of fall's grandeur. You can always tell fall is in full swing by the busses full of bluehairs dividing their time between leaf-gazing and Indian Casino-hopping. I'll try and get some more pics as we get closer to what is known as "peak colors".

Yeah, fall is definitely one of my four favorite seasons.

Wow. And ditto your sentiments about fall; it is my favorite time of year too.

I miss fall. We have no fall in LA. We do have four distinct seasons, though. They are:

1. Earthquakes
2. Wildfires
3. Mudslides
4. Sweeps

Beautiful photo!

My friends and I were just sitting on the patio at the bar tonight talking about what a great time of year this is. Of course, what we meant was that during the day it's in the mid-70s and in the evenings it might drop down into the 60s. I love the crispness and freshness of autumn. October is far and away my favorite month of the year.
