Evening sky

This evening the sun painted the cloud yellow which then mellowed to a coral orange.  The lovely yellow light reflected off the white breast feather of a threesome of feeding chickadees.

The golden leaves of the riverside cottonwoods and box elders are now dropping.  The brush oaks on the mountainside are also falling.  A weather change is due at the end of the week.

Autumn colors

This year the orange and red Maples dropped their leaves early.  We are now seeing the oak brush changing to yellows as well as the Cottonwoods and  Box Elde tree along the river.
