a Missouri Autumn like no other...

We've been taking short day trips around northern Missouri in the last few weekends of October, trying to capture all the beauty that God has blessed us with.

I truly can't remember such vibrant colors in many seasons past, so I can only attibute it to all the rain that we got through the year.
And just like life, there is a lesson to be learned here for me .... no matter how much we complained on every single motorcycle trip we took over the summer, about getting rained on / rained out, our endurance paid off and our reward is evident this fall.

Witness the beauty with me:

Just beautiful pictures! What loveliness to behold. I wanted to thank you so much for the absolutely gorgeous Santa mask! Words cannot describe how pleased I was when I opened your beautifully wrapped creation! I was surprised just how big and light it was. Thank you so much for sending it to me! I will treasure it always...

Karen your pictures are stunning. Cath and I spent an extra day in Missouri to catch a little R&R before we continued the drive home to Mexico. Even though it was raining most of the time and the fall colours were not yet as spectacular as your pictures it was still one of the most beautiful states that we drove through.
