Fall Color at Its Peak in Eastern Kansas

Fall color in eastern Kansas reached its peak last week. A few trees are still displaying shades of orange and red; many others have lost their leaves. Even this partially colorblind person can appreciate the autumn color present in the pictures appearing below. Click on each image to increase its size.

The bridge linking Kansas and Missouri is present in one of the pictures below. Officially known as the Centennial Bridge, this bridge is known by the locals as the Blue Bridge. The Vh1 biography of Melissa Etheridge, who was born and raised in Leavenworth, features her crossing the bridge in her move to California. In actuality, she would have either taken K-7 south to I-70 or K-192 west, neither of which would have been as dramatic.
