This view.


Coming up to the crest of the plateau.


On the way down to home.
This is the only part of my daily commute that makes it all worthwhile.  I never get tired of this view - it almost doesn't look real.  This time of year, the mountains start to look like bright patchwork quilts, with their reds, oranges and yellows.  Even with the very dry year, there is still a lot of color.  Unfortunately, the leaves drop almost immediately, so it will be a very short and colorful season for the leaf-peepers.

  4. Here in NE Iowa, it is approaching our peak. We are due to have a good bit of rain tomorrow and I fear it will be a short lived show here as well. I will never get tired of my view to work either, I get to cross the Mississippi River with the bluffs on the WI side just as amazing as the IA side each day....sigh - mother nature is a rock star (most days!)

  9. That is beautiful. I wish we had fall colors here! It just guts me that we don't. (The lack of cool weather guts me too. I LOVE wearing cozy sweaters).

    1. Kristin - Oh, geez. I don't think I could go a year without a season of sweaters. Actually, we have two seasons of 'sweaters', come to think of it... :)
