Red Maple Leaves

    I’ve mentioned before that the deciduous trees we have here in the Robson Valley only display yellow during the autumn.  Yesterday we drove up to Prince George and made our usual stop at the Slim Creek Rest Area.  As I was walking Skye I noticed this domesticated maple tree that had all around it these beautiful frosted reddish leaves.  I had to walk back to the car to get my camera.
    We do have something called a Douglas Maple that is native to our area.  It does turn orange and red, but you rarely see it and it never develops into much of a tree.  Being a lover of color, I enjoyed seeing the deep reds and the yellowish accent leaf of this planted maple.
