Weston Bend, part I

   Kelly and I headed up to Weston Bend with the Shibas this morning, to enjoy the always-incredible fall colors. It's one of the best hikes and leaf-viewing spots in KC, if you time it just right and get lucky with the weather. When it's sunny, the whole woods GLOWS with intense, golden colors. When we arrived, however, there was a dense fog.
   For a second we worried that we weren't going to see much, but the cool fog simply revealed the colors to us slowly; you had to get close to the trees to see the colors, and at that point, the contrast with the milky-blue fog intensified them. We were actually extraordinarily lucky to get to see the woods like this!
