We just pulled off the highway into a small "observation turn out" parking lot close to the river that ran alongside the highway. First I noticed the trees were a little more yellow than they were the day before.
See how yellow they are near the river?
A look at the cliffs beyond the river.
Next we drove a little further and found a turn out where you could pull all the way down and launch a boat, so we walked around there for a bit.
These chained together logs caught my eye.
Of course I can't resist flowers in bloom!
Here is the road to the lake and boat launch area.
We climbed back into the car and drove closer to town where there was another pull out area where you could park and walk around a little so we stopped to see what we might see as we walked the paths.
A little yellow peeking through the trees.
The drive to the parking area, LOVED the wooden fence.
I climbed up on a little hill for a different perspective.
Just around the corner I saw this... The trees are beginning to turn!
As you may be able to tell, the sky was getting darker and darker, so we headed back to town hoping the rain would pass and we could get back out there later for more pictures.
