Fall always takes me by surprise.
My camera is rarely in its case and my Fitbit explodes with steps as I wander around Durham destinations with families -- downtown Durham, Forest Hills Park, the American Tobacco Campus, the AT trail, even the Botanical Gardens in my hometown of Asheville.
This is just a smattering of photos from the fall, when the trees were bursting with color,
the air held a hint of chilliness,
and the kiddos ran every which way, shrieking in delight.
