It was a cloudy day so the light was strange and beautiful, and these pictures all have this sort of blurriness that must be caused by me not knowing what I'm doing with the camera settings. (Sam tries to show me, but I still don't get it right.) They're still pretty, though---the leaf colors really glowed against the gray sky. There was some pretty amazing underbrush too, bright-colored and lighting up whole hillsides at a time.
Yellows peeking out through the pines
Abe is so excited he got a yellow leaf!! (My kids are easy to please)
Muted mixed with bright
That red-orange color is unearthly!
I love it when there are different varieties of tree growing together so you get this patchwork of color
