There are still trees with Fall Color
It was very interesting on Monday, when we left Bend Oregon with snow covered roads and fairly deep snow up to a foot in some places.
We saw snow all the way to Lake Shasta, and highway 97 between Klamath Lake, Oregon and Weed, California was much better defined with snow and bright sunshine. During the summer it just doesn’t stand out as much.
When we got home the trees still have their Fall color, and we realized how lush it is in our neighborhood. It was almost disorienting to have lived a week acclimating to snow and winter and then “Falling Back” into Autumn.
We feel blessed to live near the big city but in a real rural oasis just 20 miles east of San Francisco.
