Country Drives and Scenic By-ways

Yes it’s that time again, the glorious color show put on by the trees.  I read a quote by Thoreau, “Autumn is a second spring, with each leaf a flower”.  I’ve probably paraphrased that a tad here, but you get the point.  This past weekend was perfect for a drive to see all the colors.  Bright yellows and oranges and beautiful crimson.  I never cease to marvel at how breath-taking the colors are especially when the afternoon sunlight shines on the leaves.  They almost glow as if on fire.  A great way to spend a lazy weekend, just taking the long way to anywhere, just to slow down and enjoy the journey.
