Mother nature is sending a signal that fall is coming by changing the color of the leaves. Some trees have already started to lose the chlorophyll that gives the leaves their green color. Leaves are nature's food factories. Chlorophyll is what gives plants their green color and the process is starting to shut down already for this season. Soon the mountains surrounding the lake will be bathed in brilliant color.
