Fall in St. Louis

While they predicted that fall foliage wasn’t going to be as colorful this year, a little rain brought out the colors on Sunday afternoon as we returned home to the St. Louis area from our trip to Atchison Kansas. Click to enlarge images.

  1. Beautiful! When we lived back east, fall was always my favorite time of year. I loved the changing of the trees, and I loved scuffling through fallen leaves on the sidewalks.

    • I used to hate fall because it meant everything was dying. I’ve learned to really like fall now because of the colors and cooler days, but I still don’t think I’ll ever ‘like’ winter. I do enjoy the first snow of the year and especially right at Christmas, but I don’t care at all for the freezing temperatures and ice that inevitably comes.

  2. Just going out this morning and the trees aren’t that pretty today. I think the rain really enhances the colors, it brings out the dark barks and brightness or the leaves.

  3. All weekend, as I was driving I noticed the colors and thought about how you guys are probably really enjoying seeing them on your long drive 🙂

    • It wasn’t really that spectacular until we ran into the rain as we got close to home. The rain really enhanced the colors.
