    There are innumerable things I love about Autumn, but if I have to choose what I love MOST, I am always in absolute awe over the incredible Autumn displays of freshly snow-topped mountain peaks that rise high into the crisp blue sky, above the gloriously golden leaved trees. I completely adore nature and all its beauty <3. :)
