By late November many of the leaves have fallen from the hardwood trees. On cold mornings they crunch under my feet.
The little gullies on the sides of canyons now have some running water due to the increasing rainfall. On sunny days the cold east winds are gusting on the exposed ridge tops. Numerous limbs are beginning to fall from the trees along the trails.
It’s a wonderful time to celebrate Thanksgiving Day.

Thanks for sharing the beautiful pictures, not just now but throughout the year. I especially liked the barred owls.
Always a treat to get your wonderful, artful, positive, hopeful pictures and comments. We’re with relatives in Colorado; cold, dry, some sun, some snow in the forecast. Thankful for many many things. … John slocom NW Westover.
