Autumn 2016

Just a bit of eye candy from one of our local backroads.  There has been a drought of postings to go along with the drought we experienced this summer.  It is amazing how resilient the forests can be, in spite of no rain for weeks at a time the colours this autumn were among the best seen in the past couple of decades.

The Messenger: Upcoming event, documentary regarding songbirds
