Today has been the first day that I could feel just a hint of autumn in the air. The temperature fell below the boiling point and there was a refreshing breeze, for a change. I found this old photo from two Octobers ago that really suited my “end of dog days” mood.
I was driving back from Rose Valley Lake, just as the sun was setting on what had been a very dark overcast early autumn day. I popped over the crest of this steep hill when I saw the unexpected splash of sunlight highlighting the hilltops off in the distance. I just had to pull over to try to catch the magical view that that had suddenly appeared before my eyes!
