Autumn Colors

Autumn Colors

October 30, 2019

This is my favorite time of the year. The fall colors have been gorgeous the past few days, especially in the North Valley.

 

Last Thursday I took a friend from out of town up to Abiquiu and Taos. We visited Ghost Ranch and the Rio Grande Gorge bridge. We also drove up to Chama but the fall colors had already peaked.
The next day I looked out my window to find a gorgeous fall landscape, a lot prettier than what I saw the day before. On Saturday I visited Hyde Park in Santa Fe. The colors were pretty but a lot of the trees had already peaked. On Sunday I went for a walk in Corrales. I met two horseback riders in the Bosque and several sandhill cranes on the Rio Grande. Later that day I was entranced with the beautiful fall colors in my own backyard. The birds were enjoying themselves and provided me with good photo ops.
On a recent walk I discovered that one of my favorite trees, located on my favorite ditch in Los Ranchos, had fallen and been removed. I was in shock because there was nothing left of the beautiful cottonwood I had photographed many times on my walks. It reminded me of the impermanence of life.
