An Autumn Fire

In the last verse of his poem  Autumn Fires, Robert Louis Stevenson proclaims:

Sing a song of seasons!
Something bright in all!
Flowers in the summer,
Fires in the fall!

It was that description of the turning leaves that kept coming to mind as Bryce and I went for a canyon drive on Sunday. The valley trees are still a bright green, but the mountains are burning bright with color.

Lucky for you, I managed to snap a few photos before my camera died.

Our zippy ride for the afternoon blended well with the scenery.

It got dark and started to rain shortly before I snapped this, but a break in the clouds let the sun ignite the leaves once again, while the rain continued to fall. It was pretty incredible in person.

Happy nature lovers.
