Colour/Rural Thursday

 Roadside colour in Muskoka in Toronto's Cottage Country

Every autumn my husband and I like to take a day to travel northerly to see the changing leaf colour there. It had been a dry summer so I was surprised to see how rich the colours were this year.

Your colors cannot rival our colors!! :>) This year the leaves are brilliant and beautiful, especially along the Mississippi river. I think I'll suggest our annual autumn ride along the river this Sunday. Thanks for the idea!!

Gorgeous! We have been happy travelers, too. I sure had not expected a pretty fall at all. I am sooo happy I was wrong.

The colors are gorgeous! I never get enough of seeing it. We've had a dry year too so I was surprised at how much color we had. It didn't last long though with all the wind we've had.

Halcyon said...

We wanted to go see the colours this fall, but it looks like we might be too late! At least I get to see your beautiful shots. :)

Randy said...

I wish we had some of those red leafed trees here.

Neal said...

I love fall and love the colors in that first shot. We were in Banff and Jasper National Parks last weeke and the week before the the aspen were getting beautiful there.

Snowcatcher said...

Wow! Spectacular color! Our summer was extremely dry, too, so I wasn't sure what to expect. Looks like dry is the perfect formula for brilliant color!

LONDONLULU said...

You have beautiful colors up there! It looks just like classic New England. We love our annual northerly fall drives, though we're skipping them for once this year due to other commitments. At least I get to see it vicariously through you! (Another good reason to blog:)

I am anxiously awaiting our leaves to change that dramatically! You should stop by my blog and submit this to Orange You Glad It's Friday, a meme dedicated to the color orange! Hope to see you there!
