Boise the Beautiful ~Autumn~

Fall this year in Boise, Idaho started out warm, almost hot, then we had a quick cold snap with snow up in the mountains and then it warmed back up and most of October was a beautiful month of cool rainy days mixed with sunny days and very typical of the long Fall seasons of Western Idaho. This past weekend, the 14th of November, we had a mellow snow storm that covered the whole valley and gave the reminder that Winter is on the way. The snow from that storm has melted and the last of the leaves are falling from the trees.

The photos I have included in this thread are from the final weeks of September up until the 14th of November. All of my photos were taken in city limits and most are in the downtown area which includes my pix of the Boise River and Greenbelt and various city parks. The pictures of the wild beasts were taken along the river about 1 mile from downtown and the Boise State campus. Some of the downtown pictures were taken on a Sunday morning which explains the quiet sidewalks.


I've included a few tunes from Radiohead that fit the mood.


Enjoy!
