Ah, peak of fall. We just finished that splendid time of year in which they mark little roads around here with signs designating them as part of the “Fall Color Tour”, and if you take one, you should be prepared to drive very slowly. That is, at least if I’m in the car and have my camera along (wink).
Now, alas, the wind has taken most of them to the ground. If you missed it, however, you’re in luck—because I did all the hard work for you and took pictures of the best spots. I hereby invite you to sit back, enjoy a mini tour from the comfort of your chair, and join me in praising the Lord for the autumnal beauty of the earth. (Not included is the sound of wind rustling through leaves already fallen, the wonder of leaves falling all around like glorious confetti, and the mingled fragrance of gentle autumn sunshine and rain showers. My apologies; try to use your imagination.)“Shout joyfully to God, all the earth… Sing the glory of His name; Make His praise glorious… Say to God, “How awesome are Your works!…All the earth will worship You, and will sing praises to You…
They will sing praises to Your name….Come and see the works of God, who is awesome in His deeds toward the sons of men…Bless our God, O peoples, and sound His praise abroad.” (Psalm 66:1-5, 8)
