Woods In The Fall
The image for our place in Google maps is a year or two old, taken during the drought years. Our place is approximately one-half woods and one-half field. The brown line shows the pathway down through the woods to the creek and along the creek to the small pool W and J built for frogs to breed. The woods behind the house are primarily deciduous in contrast to the woods across the field with are dominated by pines.
The trees in the woods behind the house have now lost most of their leaves. The paths are covered with a carpet of leaves and the atmosphere was magical on a recent sunny afternoon.
A. Looking down the path to the creek. It doesn’t look too steep from this angle but looks are deceiving
B. Looking from the path at point B across the wide ledge above the creek (C)
D. On the path on the creek ledge looking in the direction of the pool
E. A little further along the path on the creek ledge looking in the direction of the pool
F. On the path looking up the hill. This does give a better idea of how steep the path is.
