It has become something of a tradition of mine to capture and post some examples of fall color here in the Austin area – that is, when we get some.

My return trip to Bend is in full swing and I’ve been enjoying a mix of hiking and biking – both road and mountain bike. One of my favorite hikes is the trail at Tumalo Falls. This is not the first time I’ve done this trail and I enjoy it every time I find myself … Continue reading Bend Oregon, 2021 – Tumalo Falls
There’s something about autumn in central Texas that has me make a point of capturing photos of the fall color. Finding fall color here can sometimes be elusive.

It’s been a few more months now and I thought I’d post an update about how the cycling has been going since my prior post. I’ve managed to keep up a pretty regular regimen of riding.

Just when I think our fall color for the year is gone I run across a bit more while out and about today. As my earlier note suggested, we can see spurts of color emerge from Oct to Christmas around here. It’s just rarely a whole lot at once. When I spot it, I admire … Continue reading Austin, Texas – Fall Color 2015 – part 2
Our fall color this year in the Austin and central Texas area hasn’t been spectacular. I still hold out some hope we’ll see some bright trees between now and Christmas. The season change happens very slowly here and you might see some bit of color change as early Oct but more often now, around Thanksgiving, … Continue reading Austin, Texas – Fall Color 2015
These were all taken at or near my place last weekend. The weather last weekend was quite nice in comparison to today – a week later.
