The colors of the leaves are changing. Fall is just stunning the mountains. In the picture above, blueberries cover the subalpine slopes of Paradise with red and yellow leaves. Still plenty of berries to pick! The Vine Maples out here in Mount Rainier National Park are also absolutely bright red. I haven't lived in an area with so many maples for several years now. I'd forgotten how red those trees can get.

The chills in the area speak of winter and snow - but we've already had several snows up in the high country. Now if we can just get the snow to stick around a bit...
