Nature on the Run

Other than a smattering of aspen trees, the autumn colors brightening the landscape in the nearby forest arrive courtesy of the shrubs that make up the understory.

During a recent morning run I found myself stopping repeatedly, stunned by the beauty of the foliage, digging my camera (a Google Pixel 3a phone) out of a pocket on the front of my pack. It had rained the day before and the early sun filtering through the tall trees made raindrops collected on the multi-colored leaves sparkle like diamonds. It was magical.

I’m grateful my dogs are patient, always waiting for me as I stop for a photo op. I don’t spend much time thinking about a photo, rather I let something catch my eye as I’m running, stop, click a photo or three, and resume running. I won’t know what I’ve captured until I’m home and start editing.

Living where there are four distinct seasons means never being bored by a landscape that’s always changing.

Take a peek at autumn’s colors in the Payette National Forest…
