Rogue Valley Autumn

A little color from the yard.

Grape vines and poison oak.

Wednesday evening rainbow as I left work.  

It looked to be a direct hit on Mom & Dad’s house.  Too bad they weren’t there to retrieve the pot of gold.

Sunset during the drive.

Sometimes it’s the weather that is “Rogue”.  After the rain comes the fog.

Hello darkness my old friend.  7:15 a.m. Thursday morning.

The drive to work on Thursday.

Not shown: first truck  of the season off the road and into the ditch just south of here.   I didn’t get a picture as I was too busy turning on my blinkers and trying to maneuver around while holding my breath that a) nobody rear-ended me and b) nobody was coming the other way without their lights on.  This will be my 18th winter of making this commute.
The drive was better Friday morning, as it was raining again:

Pear orchard neighbor.

Trees along Wheeler Creek.

Pumpkin display.  Happy Halloween!
