East Coast transplants may have finally felt at home in Seattle this fall. With a drier than usual and mostly storm-free autumn playing out, the area’s trees have sported colorful coats for longer than usual. CHS visited the misty air above Volunteer Park Monday for a more Seattle-hued look at the colors through the prism of a foggy afternoon to say goodbye to the long stretch of mostly beautiful weather. Rain is in the forecast and pretty soon those leaves are going to be mush.

Nearby Volunteer Park, Seattle’s Reddit community recently shared a view showing off the fall colors and the completed work on St. Mark’s Cathedral. CHS reported on the $10.5 million project to complete the structure’s walls left unfinished during the Great Depression. The new limestone now shines from the northwest slope of Capitol Hill — for at least another day or so.
