The Autumn Leaves

I've been blown away by the leaf color up here in northern Minnesota. I've had to take pictures from my canoe and car, and while hiking. And each day, more trees are turning color.  At first it was small parts of one to a few trees, then full trees, and today, several hundred feet of trees along the highway were all colored. When I hiked in a mixed forest of conifers and deciduous trees, colors peaked out from the dark green background.

Here's a few of the scenes I've been privileged to see.  This goes out to all the folks in the south that mostly don't get to see fall color.
