On and Off the Trees

The autumn here is very different to where I go grew up on the East Coast. You hear a lot about the Pacific Northwest rain. It's all very true. There is a lot of rain. So Autumn here is a lot more damp.

The leaves have almost all changed color now, but on hikes, things are still green under the tall tree tops.

The light shines through the trees in the most spectacular ways, reflecting off a lot of the moisture all around.

It's different to the crunchy leaf piles and dusty roads made from dry foliage, that I'm used to. Autumn here is more quiet, and calm.

It's different, but I like it a lot.
