I went seeking fall on the North Kaibab National Forest. And Forest Road 610 east led me into a colorful wonderland.
Welcome to the official September equinox when the sun will rise due east and set due west all over the world.
As the nights get longer in the Northern Hemisphere the autumn pallet appears.
The aspen glow like neon signs along the Las Vegas strip all vying for my attention.
Monsoon rains leave puddles that reflect the changing season.
Rounding a corner into brilliant light makes me sing with joy. Be thankful you can’t hear me singing.
I stop to lie down on the leaf littered forest floor.
And look up through the magnificent aspen into a brilliant blue sky.
Shadowy light beacons me into the glowing forest to dance with the aspen.
Yet the shadows draw long.
As the waning day calls me home filled with aspen energy.
What colors your world this day?
I brought this post out again to prepare for fall of 2013. Plus linking to Patti’s One Road at a Time Falling into September blog carnival. Check out how other bloggers interpret ‘Fall’ and join in with your own story.
