Vandiver: Creating memories with the colors of fall

The brilliant colors of the turning leaves on trees, the glow of an open fireplace with an array of colors from different wood as it burns, fallen leaves meandering down a trout stream that tangle my bright yellow fly line, and seeing your breath on cold mornings while watching turkey, deer and squirrels search for white oak acorns are just a few of the colors of the fall I enjoy daily.
