Ken titled this Spruced up Fir the Holidays’ and says: (ouch, puns intended : ) this is a favorite road and scene that I seem to drive by more often that I realized . . . these November colors are quite the contrast to how it looked 2 years ago . . . I forgot that I had taken the wintery shot and am quite amazed at how close they line up in composition, being that it was unintended!
