Deeper into the Woods

Ready to keep riding?

My faithful steed waits patiently while I get off to snap photos pick up the brightest, most freshly fallen leaves for pressing

The deeper I go into the woods, the brighter the leaves become. They are not only gold, but crimson and burgundy, lemon and ochre.

Infinite variety

In some places they are still green and in others already brown, crunching under my wheels and carpeting the gravel path so thickly that sometimes I’m not sure where the trail for people ends and where the deer path begins.

Someone has put up a birdhouse. I see bright red cardinals flying around it, blending in with the colors of their surroundings, for once.

They wouldn’t stay still for a picture, though.

Trees of all sorts compete for attention on the banks of the stream

First golden...

All dressed in shades of gold and green

Don't forget to look down

Don’t forget to look down

Don't forget to look up

Don’t forget to look up

Thanks for coming along yet again! Keep your bicycles well-oiled and ready to go, because we’re not done just yet. Until the autumn’s over, we’ve still got riding to do.

Until next time…

    • Thank you! I look forward to seeing more of your adventures, too. I think your Oscar must be a born explorer. My pooch is 16, so he’s retired from walking in the woods. He waits at home and looks at the pictures when I get back.
