Last Monday I was in this neighborhood and these trees didn't look like this. I most certainly would have remembered if they were on fire like this--I wonder if the very dry and hot weather all summer has messed with lots of the fall foliage here? I know I've not been out a lot, but when I have been, I haven't noticed much color, or I've noticed that the leaves have already fallen from the trees.
Aren't they amazing? The street is West Burnside where it intersects with NW 23rd Avenue. Mama and I lived in that neighborhood from October, 2006, until she died in January, 2011. I still miss the area, but I'm very happy where I've been all these years, about three miles almost directly east of that apartment.
