Spectacular stuff. After getting our Mother home, we took her for a spin in her favorite spot in the galaxy because we knew the scene was going to be white hot – or maybe red hot – with Fall colors. We guessed right.
If you click on the pictures, they’ll expand for you.
The timing was perfect. Lower and more protected levels of the drive – consistently warmer micro climates in these woods – still have a ton of green. It contrasts with marginally more exposed and the higher levels in magnificent ways. The drive itself – and it is not long – winds through forest, revealing more color as we advance.
Some of it spectacular indeed.
We approach my favorite spot of them all in Bernheim Woods – the Canopy Walk – with some serious excitement and let it all unfold around us.
It’s definitely gorgeous in spades.
The sights are strong and full of color and the thrilling sense of depth all these hardwood forests give so generously. This even smells like a cool forest.
On the approach, we look over the edge and see down into the forest floor and canopy from above it all. It is pretty breath-taking.
Fullness and a rotating sense greet the eyes as we feel a bit elevated and a lot intrigued.
We get to the end and there we are – above and beyond in a full spectrum Autumn Show.
It is pretty much too pretty for words as we return to the lower regions and discover something wonderful.
Pretty cool stuff.
