The breezes have playfully decorated its branches with multicolored leaves. Were they playing a Hal- loween prank or is this a preview of a Christmas tree? I look yearningly at the bounty of cones in the top branches but have to settle for some low grow- ing cones on a nearby hemlock. I stuff my pockets with these to carry home to be used in Christ- mas decorations. l'd like to spend all afternoon here but chores call to me. As I retrace my steps I am suddenly aware I walk in beauty. It forms a canopy over me, floats silently through the air around me, sur- rounds me on all sides and Is trodden on with each step I take. The Ohio tourist said a lady at a tourist information booth had suggested he take Scenic Highway 150 from Route 219 on Elk Mountain to the Cranberry Center before going to Hillsboro -- because the leaves would be at their peak color on this drive. However, he felt she had given him little indication of the spec- tacular colors and views he would encounter. He insinuated we natives did not really appreci- ate our Autumn Gold. I smiled, thinking of my after- noon in the woods, but agreed that he could be right. We na- tives know this beauty has a short season and we do take to the highways, by-ways, lanes and paths to enjoy it. We know our Autumn Gold soon turns to dross and is crumbled under our feet and we moan and groan as we work to rake and bag the many leaves from our yards.
