Finally, It’s Fall

We’re feeling lucky today.  Even though fall color has been visible in locations throughout California since August, Google’s search masthead today makes it official.  Finally, it’s fall. In the past week, I traveled to attend a travel writer’s conference in Iceland.  Though that Nordic country has much to its credit, Iceland’s fall color doesn’t hold a candle (or more appropriately, a lava flow) to California’s. Here are some of the great photos that have appeared on our Facebook site, since I took off towards the artic circle.
