Each one told a story of life in the elements among birds and squirrels facing storms, dripping with the languid heat of summer, watching the aspens and birches let go of their color first, waiting, waiting, and then making peace with the earth.

  14. Oaks are always one of the last to let go of those storied leaves. Beeches hate to let go too. They always appear to be ghosts in the woods during winter.
