Goldenrod 




Virginia Creeper
The Virginia Creeper turns a gorgeous red
in the Fall.  Here you see it clinging to this huge
Cottonwood tree. 

 
A quiet place in the woods to sit and take
it all in.  I saw a sweet little Doe...she wasn't
scared of me either.  The squirrels were busy. 
I could hear them scampering through the leaves 
making a rustling, crunching sound.

The woods are changing so fast.  I took a walk through them
last week with my family and the paths were thickly strewn
with fallen leaves.  It was exquisite walking the paths with
the thick carpet of leaves swishing and crunching under
our feet. 

Next week, a "Walk in the Woods" part 3.

Have a great week!  :-)

Don't you love kicking through the fallen leaves like a kid? I did the same thing a couple of days ago myself. :o)

Wow Mom, these are really great photos! I love the full wood scenes! Great pic with the sun coming through the tree! I wanted to "like" it and comment on it (like FB) but couldn't figure it out :)
