Fall has always been Alayne's and my favorite season, and wow, did we ever move to the right place for autumn colors!

I don't think we're even at peak yet, because some of the trees are only now starting to turn.
But everywhere I look here, we have trees that are just ablaze with colors. Here's a close-up of another group near the pond:
I made these photos larger than usual for posting, so to see them in a bigger version, just click on them. Enjoy the scenery -- we certainly are!
Still 2nd place as of Sunday!
