Changing colors

I went on a bike ride yesterday and got to take in all the beautiful sights of trees changing colors. Of course, living with the redwoods, there are many trees that stay green all year. But I caught glimpses of bright yellows, oranges, and reds as well. Gorgeous.

I was going up this one hill and I saw a brilliant pink and light orange tree ahead. Oooooo, I couldn't wait to get up closer. But when I got there, I realized it wasn't a tree at was poison oak! The oak has climbed up a tree as a vine and its leaves were the prettiest out of all the trees I had seen (which I thought was really funny). I guess it's time for them to change colors, too.

I love autumn.
