Every since I was little I loved acorns.

Fall has always been my favorite time of year and I love walking among the fallen leaves.

The leaves in Alaska are just starting to turn and I recently kicked an acorn and chased it down the road so I could pick it up.

I held it by its little hat and studied it up close.

It reminded me of so many things: the first day of the school year, a crisp wind and even an old VHS Chip and Dale cartoon my brother and I used to watch over and over again.

I almost kept it but placed it back on the ground where it belonged.
