Autumn parades through town in Color

This year we enjoyed many crisp, cool, dry Autumn days.  Today as I walked through the leaves hearing them crunch, I was reminded of my childhood in the Midwest.  Leaves of all colors were like a blanket over the entire town.  We did art projects every year with leaves. People used to burn the leaves and I can remember the scent.  Because it is typically so damp in the Seattle Area, we don't often get these colorful dry days.  I just had to go out on a road trip to take in the sights of the changing season.  I headed up Hwy 2 to Index.  It was a perfect day!
