Autumn Colour

Autumn is my favorite time of the year. The light is incredible, the colours intense, and the air is crisp. I like to think of fall as the beginning of the year. Maybe it has something to do with kids and school, or it's just because its a season of change, somethings ending, others starting anew.

Autumn brings out the kid in me. I am still outside digging in the dirt whenever I can, raking pine needles and jumping in the crunchy leaves, and walking the beach looking at all the cool rocks. This year with my first attempt at college, time seems to be in short supply for these 'kid' activities. But the clear cerulean blue skies and chilly air beckon me outside to explore and play.                                          

Play this weekend was a 100km round trip on the quads to Summer Lake. What an awesome day; the mountain slopes covered in almost a fluorescent flood of colour. A hundred shades of green shifting into yellows, oranges, and reds. Breathtaking.
