||From South Carolina to Minneapolis we got to see Autumn
spread out in all her glory,
from the green leaves, conifers, and palm trees of southeast atlantic coast
up through the
mountains and river valleys to the north, resplendent with orange and gold,
( ...days pass... )
...Crossing from St. Paul Minnesota across the Cascades we drop down into
snowcapped peaks and rising mist among evergreens and deciduous trees; green,
water, snow, naked rock, trailer parks. It was cold and sunny at the end
of the line....
We hugged and kissed.
