Sunday afternoon we ventured out of our home and drove to an area about six miles away. It was a beautiful day and it beckoned us to get out and go for a walk. I bagged up a few chocolate chip oatmeal cookies and off we went. Never know if you might need some energy food… Lol! We decided to park our car near a Christian camp called Loch Leven. Last year we had talked to a young woman that was preparing to hike along the snow covered trail at the same location. We were not sure what we would encounter but with my trusty camera I was ready for a little time of exploration.the buckwheat was vibrant

the lichen on the tree trunk caught  my attention

the contrast of colors dazzled my eyes

a little trail treasure

stay tuned for more to come on fall foliage….
