Shades of Nature

Shades of Nature (1)

Here’s a fun twist for your next nature walk, as the last few days of vibrant fall colors leave us behind. Bring along some paint chips (these are free at any local hardware store) and hunt for fall colors!

Travis and I stopped to pick up paint chips in the morning, making sure we selected lots of yellows, oranges, reds, and browns. Next stop: a local trail!

Travis noticed lots of browns right away, spanning from dark brown leaves…

Our local area is past peak leaves, but we managed to spot some deep reds left in the bushes..

Our favorite was these orange beauties!

In sum, this was a nice way to add purpose to a weekend family stroll, and Travis enjoyed playing color detective!
