Morning on McClellan Mountain

At sunrise in September, beneath Dinsmore on McClellan Mountain out Hwy 36 in mid-Humboldt County, there’s a serene beauty in the rising fog. The first rays of sunlight reveal the mist as it drifts up from the valleys. The landscape, tinged with autumn colors, appears hazy and dreamlike through the thin fog.

Who else has autumn photos even before summer is gone? All you pumpkin spice and fall color fans have your chance to elbow out the summer folk as they grieve the passing of their favorite season.

It really is beautiful out here at Mcclellan rock. I would say that these kind of mornings herald the arrival of my favorite season and the passing of my least favorite season. I HATE summer. Hot, dusty, fires, sweaty, bugs etc.

Only change I have noticed is the days are shorter. Getting darker sooner. No trees changing color or dropping leaves. Give it another month.

Here along the coast this is our summer. Clear warm days. Corn tasseling, pumpkin flowering.

Fall begins in early August. The equinox is “mid autumn”. ☺

The days begin getting shorter after solstice in late June. Therefore all those shortening days should be considered Pre-Winter, relentlessly losing daylight until the coldest, darkest and most bitter day of all- that wretched day that we call “Christmas”. Only then do the days begin getting longer. January should be considered as Pre-Summer. But humans just can’t accept reality!! You’re welcome…
