Bitten by the bug of fall colors, I took a day to drive around the Texas hill country west of Austin. Texas has its share of color, though it is more subtle than in New England, with the colors generally much deeper. Bald cypress turn a lovely rusty brown, cedar elms a muted yellow and red oaks become a rich burgundy. I don't have any photos of red oaks, though, because they won't be at their peak until the end of November or early December. How lucky am I to experience such an extended fall?!
