Autumn Leaves in Indiana

Brisk mornings these first days of Autumn in Upland always make me think of Jay Kesler (former president of Taylor University and Youth for Christ) reciting this James Whitcomb Riley poem at Taylor University when I was a student and when I worked there. Fall is my favorite time of the year in Indiana, and listening to this poem is as much a tradition for me as enjoying hot beverages and soups, the smell of camp fires and burning leaves, hikes among fallen leaves, eating pumpkin pie, Homecoming at Taylor, Mississinewa 1812, wearing flannel shirts, and more.

What are your Autumn traditions?
