Snow has been falling for the past few week or so now, and it's beautiful. But I am just not ready to say goodbye to fall. So here are a few photos from my last few forest walks this autumn.
Most of the beautiful autumn color is gone, but there's still lots to see. On a recent walk, I discovered this wooden wind chime deep in the forest.
I have to say, it looked better than it sounded.
Cute little shelter in the woods. It's just begging for picnickers, I think!
Last few stubborn leaves hanging on....
Fallen leaves, of course:
Lots of ivy!
And evergreens scattered throughout the forest.
There are even a few giant sequoias to be found:
They weren't that giant. Maybe they're babies?
I love the forest at all times of the year, but it was truly magnificent when the leaves were falling. There were just so many that it almost felt like rain. Listen to this video:
That sound isn't rain falling. It's leaves!
