Multicoloured leaves still hanging onto their branches overhead offer a feast for the eyes.
Crunchy ones underfoot give off that musky-sweet aroma that our minds associate with our individual memories of the season.
Watching the video above (shot by SooToday videographer Drew Armstrong somewhere in a part of the city that he wouldn't really tell us much about) you can almost smell the sugars in the leaves breaking down as the process of decomposition begins.
If you haven't got out for a walk in the woods, now's the time to get to it. Stroll on, Sault Ste. Marie.
