Dreams of Fall Foliage
Its been more than a dozen years since we have enjoyed the Autumn colors of an Eastern hardwood forests. We daydreamed about the reds, oranges, yellows, and all those wonderful fall colors.
Wouldn’t you know a serious drought this year has the trees either dropping their leaves earlier or has dulled their colors. Here in the Allegheny National Forest the dominate color is yellow and not the luminous golden yellow of Aspen back home. But there are, every now and again, spots where our daydreams came true.
Here is Fred doing his thing at Tracy Ridge campground surrounded by yellow.
The Fall foliage of mountainsides across the Allegheny Reservoir at Willow Bay campground are more of what we had dreamed of seeing.
It is that time of year when the water in small lakes or pond is warmer then the air. When that happens “ghosts of fog” dance in the water’s surface. In this photograph you can see what the “kids” and I saw most mornings while camped at Twin Lakes campground.
