Walking into Autumn

    “Nature’s first green is gold; her hardest hue to hold.”—Robert Frost

    Fall has always been my favorite season. It’s nature’s fabulous 50-something woman, as glorious as she will ever be, decked out in gorgeous hues of gold and scarlet set against a dazzling blue sky. The air is cool, but the warm sun still remembers summer. Fall is the time for back-to-school, for harvest festivals, and for long nature walks along the river or in the foothills.

    I love to explore Eagle in the fall. Armed with my camera phone and Instagram account, I treat each autumn walk like a treasure hunt, looking for the perfect hue. Eagle’s trails are a living museum of splendid color. Our family’s annual tradition has been to take family photos near the Boise River when the leaves change, so I am always searching for the perfect backdrop.

    Here are a few memories of my favorite autumn walks in Eagle.

    When you’re planning your fall photos, be creative! I love this picture of my daughter at Merrill Park, showing me a brilliant maple leaf.
