autumn splendor

The I Heart Faces photo challenge this week is Autumn Splendor.  We used to live in New England where those two words put together definitely meant something spectacular.  Reds, browns, oranges, yellows, it was amazing.  After suffering such a bad drought this summer here in Texas (which we are still recovering from) I haven't seen many traces of autumn.  There's some beautiful trees here and there, but it definitely doesn't feel like autumn.  (As I sit and write this, it's 80 degrees the middle of November.)

The boys went camping this weekend with the cub scouts.  It reminded me of last year's camping trip where the beautiful yellows felt like autumn, so I decided to enter this photo and remember cooler days and beautiful colors.
