I find myself very lucky to live in a part of the world that experiences such distinct seasons. Those early fall days when the air starts to become crisp yet the sun still shines bright and warm are some of my favorite - otherwise known as October. I love taking a drive from Seattle over the mountains (with many, many detours) on my way to Plain, the town I grew up in and where my family still resides. The trees are all changing to fall colors and the landscape rolls out like a painting.
Below are some of my favorite photos from last month's drive through the PNW and all its beauty.
