Two Sides Of The Beauty Of Autumn In Olympia

Industry Observer

Autumn in the Olympia area is a beautiful time of year, with some really varied looks. 

 Foggy fall morning Olympia

One morning the gentle blanket of fog may mute the leaf colors in the trees, giving the world a soft, gauzy look.  The droplets of moisture on spider webs still glisten, even in the paler light of these foggy mornings.

And often, that foggy morning suddenly turns into an afternoon of brilliant sunshine.  In the blink of an eye, the tree colors stand out in all of their brilliant elegance - reds, yellow, oranges, and hues I don't even have a name for - other than beautiful.



Fall color in Olympia

It's pretty ironic that I remember the first few years I moved to Washington, I somehow thought there were not really distinct seasons like I had experienced growing up in the Midwest.  But the longer I have lived here, the more I see the very definite seasonal changes that do occur.  Maybe the "ever-green" color of the stately fir trees initially blinded me to the leaves that DO change color.

The autumn display of nature's color palette - Olympia is a gorgeous place to live!

Thanks Debbie!  The fall colors are truly amazing, aren't they?  The section of freeway I drive between home & my office is lined with trees just as colorful as can be - makes it SO tough to keep my eyes on the road!

The turning of the leaves is one of the most magnificent things about the transition from summer to winter. Thanks for sharing.

Elva, I agree! All of those colorful leaves always seem like a last little burst of summertime warmth before we turn to greet winter.
