Autumn in Spokane

In the past few weeks, genea-bloggers have been proudly displaying photos of local autumn colors. My brother-in-law and his family spent a day in the Greenbluff area about three weeks ago, just northwest of Spokane, well-known regionally for its orchards and small farms. Mike's taking a photography class, and snapped these calendar-worthy shots, capturing the brilliant colors that have since faded:

Aren't they breathtaking? They're a great reminder of my favorite season! Now that November is here, the leaves have fallen off most of the trees and the bright hues are dulled. When the sky isn't overcast, the blue looks pale and cold, instead of the warm azure we saw last month. As I drove to the November meeting of the Eastern Washington Genealogical Society on Saturday and saw the wind scuttling the dry leaves through the downtown intersections, I realized that when I return for the next meeting, there will likely be snow on the ground!
