Autumn is when the days and nights are the same length, then, gradually the nights become longer until Winter. At the time when the days and nights are pretty even is when the veil between the physical world and the spirit world is thinner and communication easier. This occurs on All Hallows Eve also known as All Saints Day or Halloween. Autumn is a time of balance, but balance cannot last. So we are preparing for the colder weather and shorter days. It is a time to rest and go within after our summer of work in the fields (or elsewhere). I personally enjoy nights that cool down to 70 or less since I do not have air conditioning. Once it frosts allergy season is over - yippee! In my opinion, Spring and Fall are the best seasons, while summer is too hot and winter is too cold for me.
I live here in Colorado and I always try to take a fall trip to the mountains to photograph the aspen trees in all their glory. If you have never seen them I suggest that you plan a week or ten days for a vacation in Colorado next autumn. It's not far off now! I can't wait to try out my new camera of those fabulous landscapes.
Over the weekend I went to Kenosha Pass, Colorado and the aspens were at their peak! So I took lots of photos and will be uploading them over the coming weeks. Be prepared for spectacular!
