A little local color...

We haven’t taken a lot of really great foliage pictures this fall -- the color in our area just doesn’t seem as bright as usual -- but I thought I would share just a few pictures.

It rained a lot last week, so many of the leaves fell off the trees. Mr. T got a couple of great photos of individual leaves against the wet ground. These pictures really show the bright colors of the individual leaves.

And then on Saturday, we took an easy hike with missionaries who were at our church’s missions conference. We try to do this almost every fall. It’s a beautiful view of trees and lakes with very little effort -- the hike only takes 30 to 40 minutes and is quite an easy climb. But check out the view!

Isn’t it gorgeous?

    Looks like swamp maple (amur) leaves, and the Maine coast. Both beautiful.


  3. Wow!! The leaves are so vibrant! The view is spectacular up at the top of your hike. Don't you often wonder how anyone can believe in evolution?

  4. Hi everyone,

    Yes, aren't these colors gorgeous? I agree, Rachel -- it's so hard to understand why anyone would think all of this "just happened". God is indeed so creative, as Mary said in her comment.

    I'm glad we got these photos before going on vacation, because all of our color is gone now up here. We did see quite a bit of nice foliage passing through Connecticut and Rhode Island, though.

    God bless,
