Much of the corn has been picked and the fields ahead look naked, like a newly shorn sheep, or a summer haircut.
The boardwalk through the marsh is glowing golden and a few summer frogs provided some background music.
Past the tight new cat tails . . . .
. . . and into the piney woods. I wish my blog had Smell-o-Vision. The sun on the pine needle carpet made a heady perfume, so lovely I had to sit down on the warm pine needles for awhile, lean against a tree, and just inhale.
This has been the sunniest, warmest, best October in Minnesota I have ever experienced!
