Into the Woods

Yesterday was a perfect autumn day. The air was cool, the trees were aglow with sunlight, and the wind made the whole forest rustle. Come along with me for a walk in the woods?

We'll stop by the pond first, to admire the watercolor reflections there. No frogs today; it's getting cold for them, I think.

Autumn Pond

Just beyond the pond stand some lovely old trees, all decked out for fall.

The red maple marks the trail head, standing like a great, flaming gate to a secret world.

Trail Head

Passing under the guardian tree, we enter the cool, quiet woods.

An archway of saplings makes for a fine, welcoming entrance.

Stand still for a minute, and listen to the leaves as they rustle and fall:

Thanks, Rambling! Thanks for taking the time to check out the movie. It's the first one I've ever posted. Making it was fun, but it's totally hogging up my hard drive. LOL Now that it's immortalized, I can delete it off of there.
