Today is the first day of fall. A beautiful time to enjoy the beauty of Kentucky, the fall season. I remember when we moved to Kentucky, I had to ask my uncle Bobby why prices for lodging were so high in October. It just seemed so odd. But after witnessing a few fall seasons here, I know why.
We had fall in the West too. But it surely doesn't look like it does here! Don't get me wrong ... I love Idaho just as much as I do Kentucky. But fall in Idaho doesn't last very long. Especially once the snow starts flying in the higher country. Fall is just a blink in the scheme of things.
In Kentucky, and our surrounding states too, the fall season lasts a bit longer. I guess because we don't get the high mountain snows, huh? Heck, we rarely get snow here. Or what I'm used to anyways. But, don't get me started on winter..... I'm still looking forward to what's to come.
My sister has never seen a fall in Kentucky. She always came out to visit me during the winter months, so just always saw the bare trees we witness through winter. She's got something to look forward to with our fall, huh? We are thinking about taking a drive down to Gatlinburg in October, I'm guessing it will be gorgeous!
As I look out the window this morning though, it looks more like winter. It's dreary out there.... and a bit chilly too! Do I really have to start unpacking winter clothes? Can't I just get by with a light jacket for a few more weeks? I'm not asking for too much, am I?
We really shouldn't complain though, we definitely need the rain. Maybe not today .... but down the road it will be nice. Our pond is needing some water in it. Thankfully it doesn't go dry - or the ducks would be mighty unhappy.
Where is your favorite place to witness the beauty of Fall in Kentucky? Let me know, maybe I can get another road trip in the planning stages!!
Have a great Friday everyone. Be safe wherever you might be.
