Autumn's Delicate Dance

The Gunnison National Forest
Colorado, USA

Overnight, Mother Nature has blanketed the mountain with a light dusting of snow.  The brilliant yellowed autumn leaves cling, as winters approach is inevitable.  Soon their hold will be loosed and they will fall, their color will fail and they will return to where it is they had sprung.  But that day will not be today.

Today they shine like the light from a candle in a dark place and their incandescent brilliance illuminates the landscape filling one with a sense of joy and a peaceful knowledge of things to come. 

Nature’s familiarity, are often lessons not learned, and rarely taught.

See Ya On the Trail!
