Fall and Long-Awaited Rain

I don't like to think about winter, and fall leads to winter---but a few days of rain after three totally dry months, and fall looks rather pretty!    This is Hwy 204, the two-lane state highway that goes west from our town across the Blue Mountains.  It's a beautiful drive in any season; winter is just a little dicey sometimes.  I'm linking up with Your Sunday Best and Weekly Top Shot.

Oh, that wet looks very familiar about now!

Beautiful shot - you're right: fall looks rather pretty! You caught the fall mood, light, and wetness. Makes me want a nice hot cup of tea or cocoa.

I'm with you, Evelyn! Fall leads to winter and winter is not my favorite season either :~( We certainly needed the rain, although not all at once. Monday's storm was quite a downpour!!!

But the colors of Autumn are beautiful, which makes the season a bit more palatable :~)

Wet here today too. :-(
This does look like a wonderful place to be driving though, even in the rain.
