Fall Colors, sort of

 California Incense Cedar, looking really productive. Lots of male and female "cones."
 Mountain Ash, a grand specimen by the Plumas County courthouse in Quincy.
 For a while, the brightest colors in the area will be the berries.  If all goes well, aesthetically, this show will be followed by Mountain Ash leaves turning bright red and the neighboring Sweet Gum trees ...
 will exhibit a a wide range of reds, yellows, oranges, and purples.  For now, a few of the trees around
the courthouse are showing small patches of yellow.  The leaves that have fallen to the ground are not at all colorful.  Mostly dried up and brown.  That should change.
