I’m my 7+ years of living in the Bay Area I’ve found that Northern California is usually a month or two behind the rest of the country when it comes to Fall. As much as I would love to join my friends in other states in dressing in sweaters and leggings, drinking hot Fall beverages and taking pictures amid the gorgeous changing leaves, I can’t. It’s still in the mid 80s here in CA, very few of the leaves have turned or will turn for at least another month, and to be honest I tried wearing a sweater and leggings the other day on a zoo trip and it didn’t go well. By the end of the day I was soaked with sweat, and the minute I got home I raced to my room to change into shorts and a tank top… It was gross and definitely did not meet my idyllic Fall vision.
Last week though I was determined to get some “Fall” shots and we managed to find a couple fun places with some golden fall vibes and there were actually some leaves that had turned!! Yeah California!
