Fall in Siouxland, Plymouth County

7 Nov

I went for a drive the end of last week to see the remainder of fall and its glorious colors. Although this year the colors have mostly trended toward yellow, there are some trees that show red. A majority of oaks in this area of Iowa have leaves that only turn brown and fall off of the trees. With  cooler weather and rain rather than snow falling lately, the leaves are beginning to “disappear”, covering the ground to start the process all over again. But the drive in Plymouth County, Iowa, was nice. Rolling hills, still some fields of corn that have not been harvested and a sunny day. A nice day to be out and enjoying the remainder of fall. Winter is coming. Pretty soon that falling rain will turn to snow.
