I have three iPods. One is very old and doesn't hold a charge. So I keep it on the Bose Dock. I have playlists for entertaining, for reading, for housekeeping, and easy listening. I still have the playlist for exercise although I can't take this one for walks because the battery no longer holds a charge.
The second iPod is a newer generation. It's USB plugs into my car and I can search and find through the sound system and keep the iPod in the center compartment. I keep this one in the car all the time.
The third iPod is the newest generation and includes a camera. I rarely use the camera and have only the basic camera program that came on the iPod. Since today is rainy and misty, I decided to take some pictures with it and keep my regular camera dry.
There is a fair amount of color here already although there are also lots of brown leaves that a falling off in the wind and rain.

The oak is still green while other trees are yellow

This is definitely a muted year for color around here. Color may be more brilliant in other areas. Still, the leaf peepers are flocking to the mountains in larger numbers than last year. The Federal Government shutdown closed the National Parks and decreased the number of tourists visiting the mountains last season.
We are lucky to live where we do. We can drive up or down a couple of thousand feet in elevation and see quite a difference in the Autumn leaves. And our community insulates us from the tourists and we can enjoy some fantastic color and views right here. During leaf season we don't venture beyond the gates during the weekends.
