Fall is already showing its colors, and how beautiful it is! Truly, there's something to love about every season, isn't there? Today I have a few photos taken on our September trip and, of course, I've got Wally and LuLu up first. They posed nicely for me in front of this bush of rose hips, as pretty now as it was when blooming in the summer. There are flowers growing all over this camp, looking quite natural in their setting. I wish I'd photographed the hollyhocks when we were there in July.
With our preponderance of conifers here in the Pacific Northwest we don't get quite the fall foliage display you see in other areas, but where deciduous trees grow there's bound to be color. In certain areas of McKenzie Pass, Oregon the maples, sumac, and conifers were taking a foothold in the lava beds and the contrast was quite striking.
We were unable to stop at some of the prettiest sites as we passed by the pull outs too quickly. We were on our way home with a long drive ahead of us, but we did want to linger here and there to enjoy it. In the photo below there's more lava bed showing.
Back at camp in eastern Oregon... we went for a long walk, exploring the area. Apples on the branch speak "fall" very clearly.
Well, gee, here's Wally and LuLu again. Can't take just one pic.
These don't look like happy faces, really. They aren't thrilled about posing and they just want me to finish up and give them the treat I promised. Sheesh, Mom.
I'll be back with more next Saturday. Have a beautiful day!
