02-03 - My first glimpse of fall foliage! As most of you know, I'm a California girl who has never lived in a place where I could enjoy the fall foliage (I do now!!!), and, to be honest, I hadn't seen any foliage as red as this until the moment I saw this tree. So, after photographing it, I collected leaves from the ground, dragged them around Portland (Uh, correction; Bruce did- thanks!) and brought them back to the cabin to press under whatever I could find that was heavy. It worked! They are now displayed in a basket on the hearth of our fireplace. Beautiful!
