Colors of Fall

Posted on October 6th, by Amy in random. 18 comments

It has been so beautiful here! I had to share pictures of the changing leaves – here’s a big dose of fall for those of you living without “seasons” :) This is by far my favorite time of the year, when I can hear the leaves crushing under my feet. I will go out of my way to crunch a few more! What is your favorite fall activity?

Our weekend was very, very wet. But I love the aftermath! Beautiful snow capped mountains. The valley we live in is surrounded by amazing peaks, this is the most photographed for it’s jagged edges. The best part is – I can see it from my kitchen! All winter long I watch the storms come in and out of the valley based on these mountains. Mt. Timpanogos
Hope you have a great Monday!
Blessings ~ Amy

    Wow, that is beautiful. I”m so jealous!!! Thanks for sharing the pictures. There are only a few trees here and there that turn colors around here. It is still in the upper 80’s here this week so it doesn’t feel like fall yet – people are still swimming in their pools. I’m longing for rain and wind!! What a gorgeous view from your kitchen, too.

    Gorgeous autumn photos. I was up your way today. The state high school golf tourney was at Soldier Hollow! I caught an amazing pic of Timp as well. It was so beautiful with the new snow on top and the changing leaves down below! I’ll go post it on my blog right now and we can compare….I can tell you right now your shot is prettier, more close up! Yea for fall in the Rockies.

    Beautiful leaves! Your colors are way ahead of ours. And the view out your kitchen window is spectacular. And I think I live in the mountains-mine are mole hills compared to yours!

    The pictures are just the breath of fall air I was needing in my day today! It is still so warm here in North Texas. We are, however, supposed to get a cold front (60’s) this weekend. Whoopee!! Definitely looking forward to getting out of the mid 80’s.

    So beautiful! This is my favorite time of year too. I love watching the falling leaves swirl around in the wind, and the smell of chimney smoke… And what a gorgeous mountain view! I’ll bet you love it when it storms. x
