All of these photos were taken last year in October. The colors this year are already appearing-we are about a month ahead of fall colors because of the cooler summer. This is a scene I walk past every time I take my 2 mile walk-all of these photos show along the road.
So far I have not met a bear, but I am going to get some pepper spray just in case. Actually, I am more wary of humans out here than wild life.
I have seen coyotes run across the road, skunks in the ditch, heard a very awful and scary creature in the woods as I was walking by, and have seen hundreds of snails, red newts, worms and other assorted creatures on the road. I feel like it's my own road.
The cloud of fog is covering the lake. Now this big fellow has about ten or so horse pals to run around with. Some of the horses are Percherons (sp?) and when they gallop it sounds like thunder-it's really neat. I give them clover sometimes.
I do love the Fall, but there's a sadness too-not too much though, but I miss my robin song....Right now we are hearing a few peepers in the woods. They always make a short comeback this time of year, and then they are silent until next spring.
