This is a downtown restaurant that used to be a train station. When I first came to town for college in 2001, the restaurant was called Jacobi's. About two years ago the owner sold it and it was renamed "The Depot Grill," which in my opinion is a much worse name, but no one cares what I think! Recently it was resold to the original owner, I believe, and it is now Jacobi's again, from what I can tell. However the building still says otherwise, so I'm not exactly sure! This restaurant is an American grill, but they also make pasta. I've only eaten here once, because they don't have a whole lot for vegetarians.

Fall Colours 7

In spite of the cold weather, there are still a few sunflowers hanging on to life this season. These are at a museum in Milton-Freewater (I'll do a series of the museum soon).

Fall Colours 6

My husband and I went for a walk last week and I, of course, brought my camera. This tree caught my eye, with its festive berries brightly coloured against the blue-grey sky.

Fall Colours 5

Still holding onto some of its summer glory, this leaf on a tree outside my home is slowly giving way to the inevitability of autumn.

Fall Colours 4

Here is the produce section of Klicker's. I love the colours! It's so festive for this time of year. To the right of the picture is the ice cream shop where they serve ice cream made in-house. Behind me is the antique shop, which I didn't go into this time.

Fall Colours 3

On the east end of town, past the community college and before you get to Rooks Park, is a place called Klicker's. Famous for their strawberries in the summer, Klicker's also grows and sells Christmas trees in December and, as you can see here, pumpkins in the fall. We went with some friends and had a lot of fun walking around and taking pictures. With the pumpkins is also a large pile of hay you can climb, with a slide to get down again, and reindeer you can watch. They also have a shop where they sell produce, ice cream, and, randomly, antiques. I'll show you a picture tomorrow.

Fall Colours 2

I just love these trees with the light coloured bark. They are lovely in the spring and summer and gorgeous in the fall. I'm not sure what kind of tree this it a birch tree? Anyone know? This particular tree is located on 2nd Avenue in Walla Walla in the La Quinta hotel parking lot. The brick building in the background is one of many downtown wine tasting rooms. This is a much bigger one in its own building; most are in small spaces amidst other shops and restaurants on the main streets downtown.

Fall Colours 1

In this large field there used to sit an elementary school called Rogers Adventist School. It's a field across the street from the Walla Walla University Church. A few years ago (3 now?) they tore down the old school and rebuilt it about 3/4 of a mile away, next to the Adventist high school called Walla Walla Valley Academy. The trees that lined the sidewalk in front of the school still stand, however, and they are gorgeous lit up in the evening sunlight in the fall.
