Oh Fall, you're so gorgeous!

Each area of the World is showing off different types of colorful transformation and the Yakima Valley is no different.

There's a refreshing smell and a reminder that colder weather is near as crisp air hits your cheeks, not yet quite cold enough to freeze the grass, raindrops shine bright with green, yellow, orange, and red leaves scattered across the valley. The sunrises are simply stunning if you're willing to wake early enough to catch them.

We're blessed to have skillful photographers, professional and amateur who are able to freeze these moments in time and while sharing a photo of a recent sunrise with its bright pink, purple and blue mixed with clouds on the Facebook group Yakima is Beautiful, I was blown away by the incredible Fall photos. So much so I reached out and asked if I could share them, the answer was a surrounding yes and if I missed yours, please don't hesitate to reach out. Let's celebrate some nature together!
