Sunrise 6:50: Color in Menlo Park

The Dawn Joggers neighborhood is filled with liquid amber trees - most planted when the houses were built in the early 50s. They reliably put on a great display of fall color, and usually peak at Thanksgiving. They'll do so this year, but only because Thanksgiving is "early" (yes, of course it's always the 4th Thursday of November). Thanks to the DJs' great gardening crew, the mess of having liquid ambers - not only the fall leaves but the spiny round fruit that gets dropped in the summer - doesn't impact them much, so they can just enjoy the color. It's all the different hues that make them so appealing...
