Brenda's Photo Challenge: Autumn In All Her Glory

Autumn in the high desert is awash in shades of white, gray and sand but there are exceptions...

"Delicious Autumn!  My very soul is wedded to it, and if I were a bird I would fly about the earth seeking the successive autumns." 
  ~ George Eliot
                                        (the co-mingling of snow and autumn on Mt. Rose)

"I cannot endure to waste anything as precious as autumn sunshine by staying in the house.  So I spend almost all the daylight hours in the open air."  
 ~ Nathaniel Hawthorne

"Autumn, the year's last loveliest smile." 
  ~  William Cullen Bryant


                   "Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower."  
 ~ Albert Camus

             "Every leaf speaks bliss to me fluttering from the autumn tree." 
 ~ Emily Bronte
