Mum's the word

Fall is here, and this season showcases the beauty of the mums and the sedums. It seems winter is overtaking fall later each year. While we know these sunny and warm falls days are numbered, we are still able to get out, crunch in the leaves and enjoy the fall flowers and foliage in the area.

The peak time to see the fall colors in the Green County area has probably already passed by, but still I thought I would take a moment to share a couple of glimpses of this year's fall display. My apologies for not having full trees to share; I was not able to find one that seemed just right for photographing that day.

The green tree right behind this golden one is one of the few in the area that have not fully turned yet. It must be confused by the unseasonably warm weather we have been having. Still, most of the trees are gorgeous shades of gold, yellow and crimson.

If you are thinking of sneaking in a few final fall hikes, the leaves are superbly crunchable right now. Cadiz Springs State Recreation Area, New Glarus Woods State Park and Yellowstone Lake State Park all have hiking trails for any ability.
