More On the Subject of Autumn

This weekend, while in Seattle, I realized that I have managed to prolong the usually short-lived autumn color experience.

I started back in late September with the first real inklings of alpine fall as tundra plants began to turn yellow and red.

A few weeks later I made it to the eastern Sierra twice during the first part of October for the peak of the aspen season.

In late October I took a one-day trip to Yosemite Valley to see the dogwoods turn red and to find an astonishing display of yellows and golds on the Valley floor.

Last weekend I was again surprised by fall color, this time in the Pacific Northwest.

If I’m lucky there is still one round to go as what passes for fall color arrives in the San Francisco Bay area. Yes, there is fall color here, though you have to look for it.
