A Walk in the Woods - Watershed #2



Here are a few of the many photos taken this past week while walking the trails of the watershed which nourishes the area and the lands of Gardens at Waters East.  (For more details about the watershed, check out the past postings for July 2, 1011 and September 7, 2011)  The colors have been wonderful these past weeks as seen here.  It is a beautiful time of year.
Places of quiet, solitude, reflection, and awe.

Enjoy the hike.

  1. How I've missed the chance to stroll in the woods here in Wisconsin this fall. Maybe we'll get one more chance yet before winter. The pine tree roots growing into the stone is amazing. The flowers in your garden are still so beautiful for so late in the season.

  3. Tree roots in the stone. What is the Niagara escarpment. I thought that would be a long way from you.

  6. I think autumn is the season when trees take centrestage and they become the 'movie stars' replacing the shrubs and other plants. The colours here are amazing, a joy to watch.

  8. Thank you for your comment! Yes, it looks like it about the same time of the year at your place. We still have som leaves on the trees, but many of the trees hasn't got beautiful colours this year. I think it's because it has been raining so much. I think the maple trees are so beautiful!

  11. The autumn pictures that you show here are so beautiful. I enjoy the colors and can almost smell the scent of autumn. Here in northern Sweden the first snow fell last weekend, it melted after 30 hours but now all the leaves and flowers faded in the cold.
    Have a nice day.

  12. Jack, love the photos of a walk in the woods on a spectacular fall day. Here in Houston, Texas we really don’t have the turning of the leaves, so it’s nice to see your perspective. Thanks so much for sharing.
