October autumn days

What a beautiful, long “Indian summer” we’ve had this year – after a long, cool spring, and a rather late summer (but August did make up for it!).  Summer weather stretched well into September, with only a couple days in the high ‘teens, and many days in the high 20s – and even low 30s C.

But October is here, and so is autumn.  We’ve had a few wet, cool days, but we’ve also had many beautiful sunny days.  Gradually the day time temperatures have been cooling off, moving downward from high to lower teens.  Night time temperatures have been dropping too, reaching as low as 0 C since mid-month, and signs of frost are appearing on car windows and frozen tomatoes.  Of course the cool nights are also responsible for the beautiful fall colours, so no one is complaining.  Right?

Today’s photos present a taste of Penticton’s autumn beauty in early October.  Don’t you wish you were here?
