This fall has been crazy. It’s been warm, it’s been sunny, it’s been dry. It’s everything Minnesota isn’t. This fall is just like the falls I had growing up. It’s fabulous. We pretty much missed all the leaf peeping up north and down south this year but the fall colors in the twin cities were some of the most spectacular I’ve ever seen, and, the fall colors went for about a month, month and a half?
Amazingly, the weather was so moderate the leaves were not ripped of all the trees by the wind (like normal), or knocked to the ground by heavy rains (also normal), and were not prematurely killed by an early, hard, frost (super normal as well).
The weather has been so moderate I was even able to do my ‘upside down reflection’ photography of the Hennepin bridge and the Mississippi River. That’s usually never possible.
Fall has been down right wonderful. This must mean we’re getting 90 feet of snow and -40F weeks this winter. There is no way we could have a beautiful fall and not pay for it later. This is Minnesota afterall.
Enjoy the photos!
