Gift #490: Autumn walks

“Now autumn’s fire burns slowly along the woods, and day by day the dead leave fall and melt.”  — William Allingham

Today was a perfect autumn day – cool and breezy with full sun, bright blue sky, and multi-hued foliage.  Thus, it called for spending the day in the woods and I was happy to comply.  My mom and I packed a picnic and headed off for Eagle Creek.  We hiked for a couple of hours, had lunch, and knit outside overlooking the bird feeders so we could watch the birds, and the squirrels who masquerade as birds.  I took lots of pictures so there will be lots to share in the coming days.

The woods were beautiful.  So many leaves had fallen that it was hard to tell where the trees ended and the forest floor began.  In fact, sometimes it was hard to tell where the trail was there were so many glorious, wonderful leaves.  I loved listening to them crunch underfoot as we stirred up the scent of fallen leaves.  One of my favorite smells!  I hope you enjoy the pictures of Indianapolis in autumn glory.
