Jami dropped Krysten off around 7 this morning to spend the day with us and James didn't work all day, so when he and Zach decided to take the bird dogs out for a little hunting, Krysten and I took a little drive to take photos of the fall foliage.
I took this opportunity to inquire as to her career inclination and she told me, "Yes, she knows what a serial killer is,,they kill people", but she's changed her mind and has now decided to be a witch,,, but not one of those who has a green face!
A hop and a skip from home we stopped to snap a shot of these horses who seemed to be enjoying the sunny, cool day. We turned off our road after a bit and crossed over the highway to mosey down another gravel road to see how much color we could find. I stopped atop an old railroad track to take a couple of shots looking north. Look closely at this shot, do you see the blurry spot way down the tracks there? I didn't notice that until I was downloading the photos and was wondering what was up with my focusing, but when I checked out the second photo I took, it had that same hazy blur in the same spot. None of the shots I took before and after those showed a problem with the lens or anything so now I'm wondering what was up there. Odd.
We turned down another road that ran along part of Crowley's Ridge and poked along till we came to Lost Road. I have no idea why it's named that other than it can be a pretty spooky looking road at night or on a dark and cloudy day. Parts of it seem to be carved through part of the ridge because as you drive along you look to either side and the tree roots are sitting atop banks which are higher than the truck, and their roots are exposed there. You can sort of see this in the photo.
Everywhere we looked there were obvious signs that Autumn had arrived in our little spot in the Mississippi River delta and was giving us a flash of it's colors before leading us into winter.
