I have lived here for all of my life and I have enjoyed many beautifully colorful autumn seasons here and in the various mountainous areas that surround Boise. One thing I have noticed this year is that the autumn colors seem to be unusually vibrant, and I am seeing a lot more red than I have in years past, when only yellow seemed to dominate the autumnal foliage. Is it just my longing for this season that I am admiring such a colorful bounty that we have every year, or have others also noticed that this year seems to be unusually more colorful than we have had in recent years?

No, you're not imagining it: the Fall colors are truly spectacular this year! I live in the North End and when I walked outside this morning I just marvelled at the profusuion of reds, oranges and yellows outside my house. Of course, Fall is always beautiful in Boise--and for my money it is by far the best time of year here--but I too think that this autumn promises to be one of the best in recent memory. I'm thinkin' maybe the weird weather we had--the second-ever hottest September on record, followed by two weeks of temps well below normal--may have something to do with it. If I understand the science correctly, the colors come from sugars in the leaves becoming "locked up" due to the shutdown of the trees' photosynthesis process.
But whatever the reason, I be likin' it! Besides the North End, other areas of town I've noticed some great color have been in the Park Centre area and also Warm Springs.
