Checking Out The Local Color

Across The Street and Down The Road


We had a good friend visit from California so we took some time to check out the local color. I thought we bloggers on the West Coast should flash a little autumn splendor for those of you in the rest of the world.

It's beautiful here in Washington state and one of the best rides to experience that beauty is the Cascade Loop Scenic Drive. We made a day of it and saw some very beautiful scenery. It's a shame, but we never take this ride unless we have visitors, so I'm promising myself this little mini-vacation next year even if no one comes to visit.

Nice. I love the soft, muted colors of the first picture the best.

It's great to see the autumn splendor from around the country! Yours is the first "west coaster" post I've seen on the autumn colors topic! Thanks for sharing!

Welcome to my neighborhood!

Having been born and raised in the foothills of Missouri, autumn was always my favorite time of year.

It's different here in the mountains, but just as beautiful.

Beautiful colours! Most of our leaves seem to have gone straight from green to yellow this year.

I totally miss lush green grass that you can sink your bare feet in. And autumn colors that made waking up to the morning sun much easier to do!

Here in the SW desert I do get beautiful pink mountains at sunset, and as they are beautiful, they don't compare to autumn foliage. Thanks for sharing.
