||Every year when Fall returns, the beauty of the surroundings inspire artists, poets, and photographers to try and capture some of the beauty that Mother Nature has bestowed on us. Living in the northeast, especially in the mountains, gives me a chance to experience all that this season has to give. It's truly a full season of enjoyment. As the summer draws to a close, we are greeted by Apple season, which leads us right into Halloween. After the trees have reached their peak of color, we start to think of Thanksgiving and when the first snowflakes will fall. For all these reasons and more, when I think about this season I cannot be content to mention only the colors of the leaves.
