Autumnal Colors

The Spokane River with fall colors emerging.

Once again I find myself walking the banks of the river admiring the subtle change of colors as summer surrenders to fall. The life sap retreats in preparation for its yearly hibernation and the trees reveal a different face. Today, the change is just barely noticeable, but experience tells us the leaves will ignite in fiery shades of red, yellow, orange; and then suddenly one day the world sleeps beneath the icy grip of winter.
