It’s been a strange fall in Minnesota: The leaves have been muted this year, and it’s been unusually warm. So warm, in fact, that last week we had two days of dense fog.
But nothing lasts long in this part of the world (except maybe winter). The leaves are mostly gone now, victims of last weekend’s winds — and tomorrow we’ll get our first snowstorm.
In hindsight, I’m grateful I seized this less-than-perfect day last week for an afternoon’s walk in the woods.
