This week's post is all about 48 hours of trees and color, Wednesday and Thursday. By coincidence, I had plans to meet two close friends for lunch in Prestonsburg -- two hours away -- on Wednesday. However, I barely made it out of our driveway because it turns out that was the day fall peaked. It was beautiful everywhere. But, even with all the driving I did -- and it was all exhilerating -- nothing was any more beautiful that day than our driveway.
So please excuse me if I share too much fall foliage today and next week as well. I am not trying to be competitive, truly, but we did have a very amazing two days -- followed by a front passing through with strong winds and .62 inches of rain overnight....
|This is where the driveway opens up, close to the house I am leaving for the day.|

|Because I stopped and got out of the car, I happened upon an unusual sight and one which turned out to be very brief, since the wind soon blew the web away. I am thrilled with these three found moments.|
|I continued out to the road, looking left,|
|and looking up, while stopped,|
|looking out again, when the driveway crosses the pipeline area,|
|looking left before turning right and heading to Prestonsburg,|
|and passing the neighbor's fields and woods along the road.|
Speaking of Halloween, I want to add this colorful photo of the season:
|Lovely Mary! Great colors on you!|
I am now going out for a short walk, before it gets too dark (earlier than yesterday.) I'm glad to be able to share these wonders with whomever makes it here to this post!
