I am still waiting for the fall color to come into its own here in the Pacific Northwest. My friends in Salem say that may of their trees are already bare but in Portland and out eastward in the Gorge the leaves are tenaciously holding on to life and chlorophyll. They're probably just trying to frustrate me and will wait until I have no free time to change and then will disappear before I have a chance to catch their transformation. However up around Mount Hood the maples started to show their color a few weeks ago. They look like bonfires in the undergrowth in stark contrast with the deep emerald color of the evergreen canopy.
Oh well, I will continue to wait with what patience I can muster...
