Eight days after arriving in Wisconsin, I took this picture in the Chippewa Moraine State Recreation Area.
I just moved from the Pacific Northwest. One of the primary motivations was to live somewhere with four distinct seasons—after living for many years with two distinct seasons. I call them summer and fallwinterspring. Fallwinterspring is about nine months of overcast and rain—and about one snowfall. I’m a snow lover, and that’s nowhere near enough.
I’m excited to live in a place that has four beautiful seasons. I was a bit disappointed to catch only the last of autumn’s colors, but I know they will come back around. I also know that winter is on the way.
Each season has a beauty of its own, and I don’t want to miss one moment.
