I forgot my headphones this morning, so I was looking at a really boring walk to class. But Boone had other ideas: it’s fall in full swing here, and the leaves are riotously beautiful already.

When I’m not listening to music, I have a weird habit of counting all my steps. So I decided that every hundred steps, I’d take a picture of whatever was in front of me. No moving to get a better shot, no stopping on step 73 because something was particularly perfect.

Here’s my walk to class 100 steps at a time, ending with my destination — Walker Hall, of course.

And then I got to class, and said another thank you for this beautiful campus.
