Golden autumn colors

Golden fall_StaatsBy all accounts, it’s been an unusual autumn.  We had summer-like weather into late September, then a cold front dipped down from Canada and turned our thermometers past fall and straight to winter and over four inches of snow.  After a hard freeze many of us were afraid there would be no autumn color.   Although it isn’t as prevalent as usual, there are some brilliant golden colors in the landscape.  Yesterday I drove along the St. Croix River, north of St. Croix Falls, Wisconsin.  I was treated to a brilliant display of gold and yellow as the road hugged the side of the river.  The sun was setting the leaves aglow — one final hurrah for fall before the white of winter settles in.
