One of the most characteristic traits of East Tennessee is the beautiful fall color in the month of October. Whenever we had a conference which included visitors from out-of-state in the fall, one consideration of the date was always the time of the color change season. We certainly did not want to miss seeing the color ourselves when we were in town, as nature usually put on a fabulous display! With our children growing-up in this beautiful place, we always took advantage of the opportunities to record this color along with their presence. While we sensed that they were growing up quickly, at the same time we appreciated that we lived in such a vibrant and beautiful place in the world.
