It’s finally here. It’s been right at a year, but just like noon on a clock, it’s here. Fall, or to some Autumn.

Personally, I call it Fall but I understand those who want to call it Autumn. Autumn disguises the fact that the world is about to get cold, dark, and dreary.

As I look out my window today the change to fall colors is unmistakable. Never before, well, not since last year, has the landscape been more vibrant shades of brown, (construction language) brown, tan, baby (construction language) tan, black and more shades of brown.

The greens are gone. No more Kelly, Emerald, lime; just forest green turning into various shades of gray/black, comparable to the color of odd decomposing animal scat. Hey, you notice things living in the mountains.
