We're almost in December. Thanksgiving has come and gone. While most people associate these final months of the year with snow and Santa, we still have our fall colors all over Yellow City.

And for the most part, they're beautiful.

I'm not a big fan of the colder months, but there is one major redeeming factor other than the holidays. The colors.

We're actually pretty fortunate this year, if you're a fan of the fall colors. They've been around for quite a while now.

Driving around town, I decided to stop and take some photos of some of my favorite examples that I see on a regular basis.

There are deep reds that sometimes give way to an almost soft pink-ish color. There are golden yellows highlighted by browns and the last remaining greens.

You can't ignore the occasional orange hue that makes an appearance.

Also, if you're a fan of the fall colors, they may be around for a little while longer. As I'm writing this, the forecast for tomorrow is a high of 80 degrees. That's insane to me at the start of December.

And it isn't supposed to cool off much over the next week either.

Hopefully that means we'll have a little more time to have the fall colors hanging around, before they're replaced with the drab grays of winter.

The Fall Colors Of Amarillo, Texas

Here's a look at the many fall colors of Yellow City.

Can You Guess These Towns From Their Satellite Photos?

I'm always down for a good brain challenge. This one however got the best of me.
It's always a fun time looking up address or cities and seeing them from a satellite point of view. You start pointing out landmarks and things you recognize.

One thing you don't account for however is something looking bigger or smaller than you seemed to think it was. So we started grabbing a bunch of these satellite pictures of cities and towns around Amarillo.

As we looked at them, we thought to ourselves, "how fun would this be to actually have to GUESS what these places are?". So away we went.

Go ahead and try to see how many you can guess correctly!
