Standing at Hotel Road and Creekside Drive, looking toward Hermitage Road.
It would definitely be beautiful this morning, as far as color was concerned. I heard a tap-tap-tap, and looked up to see a woodpecker in the tree below. You'll have to look closely to see him as I didn't have my telephoto lens with me. He's almost at the top of the main trunk, with a red head.
I stopped on Hotel Road right where it meets Hermitage Road (the main road out to Route 3), and looked up. Oh, yes, the colors were beautiful!
Up Hermitage Road is a nature preserve--actually, the preserve covers a good sized space along Hermitage and Hotel Roads--and this morning it was still and peaceful, with a few pops of color.
Crossing the old railroad tracks beyond the nature preserve.
Wildflower along the railroad tracks.
I lingered a while, then came back to the nature preserve, below.
As I made my way back to Hotel Road to turn and go back to my parents' cottage, I paused for this shot below. It's the best one from my morning walk, with a variety of colors and trees, with the leaf-lined road curving to the right and to my parents' cottage. I know the lake is there, just around that corner; that makes this particular photo that much more meaningful.
Back to life,
