Falling Back in a Big Way

It's hard to believe that we are over a month into the fall season.  Seems like summer just started! As is always the case, fall color is difficult to predict.  Some early forecasts indicated that the peak color here in northwestern Missouri was to be sometime around October 22.  However, with the warmer weather we have had, that seems to have been pushed back.  

Some of the trees have really started to show their colors in the last few days.  It's always nice to see and the cooler temperatures are welcome after a long, hot summer.  Fall is probably my second favorite season, but isn't far behind Springtime.  Enjoy just a few images of Autumn below.  It won't be long before all the leaves are gone and the snow starts blowing.
