As I found out late in October, the leaf peeping season is a couple or so weeks away from its peak. But I already drove the 250 miles to get to my leaf peeping spot and by hook or by crook I was going to get me some fall color shots.
The explosion of colors in the hillside was nowhere to be found, the trees lining the streets were still verdant, but the lady at the local pizza restaurant where my husband and I and four other tourists in this quaint town of Quincy - the seat of Plumas County - told us to head out to the fairgrounds as there were some trees that had changed colors.
We found some yellows, browns and sprinkling of reds along the way too. Times like this I wish I live somewhere north where one can truly enjoy the changing of the season.
This is my fall color post for this year. I will try to take some photos of the trees in my neighborhood when they change colors. Right now they are very green still.
How beautifully leaves grow old. How full of light and color are their last days. ~John Burroughs
Happy Fall season everyone!
