autumn in the cascades

Just from the name “Above Bellingham”, a video exploring a small area in Washington State, might seem a bit provincial, but the views here are worth it. Check out how white the snow-covered trees are in the frame that they’ve used for the title, it’s really like that.

Waterfalls shine with glory during the autumn months, and Moss Glen Falls in Stowe, VT is one of the finest locations in the entire North American landscape. 

The shed of leaves became a cascade of red and gold and after a time the trees stood skeletal against a sky of weathered tin. The land lay bled of its colours. The nights lengthened, went darker, brightened in their clustered stars. The chilled air smelled of woodsmoke, of distances and passing time. Frost glimmered on the morning fields. Crows called across the pewter afternoon

There is something incredibly nostalgic and significant about the annual cascade of autumn leaves.
