Here in the mountains of southeastern Kentucky, fall has arrived later than usual. This past weekend, we experienced our first cold snap of the season with a bit of snow in the higher elevations. I had been remarking that the colors of the leaves were not as intense as some years; but today as we went about, I realized autumn splendor has arrived.
There are some beautiful trees around town; but as I drove up the mountain this afternoon, the sight was magnificent. Driving up and down the trail, I felt like I was in a colorful kaleidoscope. Even though it was cloudy and a bit foggy, the foliage was glorious!
There is just nothing like Autumn in the mountains! All praise to the Artist, our Creator God!
