Colorful afternoon

Filed under: Autumn — Tags: , — montucky @ 8:51 pm

After taking advantage of a clear, sunny morning to finish up some work on the house, getting it ready for winter, I went out for a bike ride this afternoon and encountered some nice fall colors. It’s so good to see a more normal fall after the rather drab one we had last year. These photos were taken along a one mile stretch of a stream (Lynch Creek) about five miles from my home.

A few more autumn leaves

The drops on the leaves came from snow that had melted just minutes before.

A couple of miles up the trail (and a thousand feet higher), this mullein had a pretty coating of frost,

Fosted mullein

and this fungus peeked out from under a blanket of fresh snow.

(These are photos of a few of the small treasures along the trail on a hike into the Cherry Peak roadless area in the Coeur d’Alene Mountains of western Montana on October 4, 2007.)
