The days are shorter and cooler - fall is definitely on the horizon.

Want another sign? Pumpkin is popping up on menus, including at Einstein Bros. Bagel shops.

The national chain is dishing up pumpkin and pumpkin walnut crunch bagels, pumpkin cream-cheese bagel poppers, pumpkin muffins, pumpkin scones and frozen pumpkin latte. Talk about putting you in the mood.

Tucson is home to several Einsteins, including at 4708 E. Sunrise Drive and 2912 W. Ina Road.
