A Walk in the Woods

Today Mom and I walked in the woods at the Genesee Country Nature Center. Before we went into the Nature Center building, we saw this milkweed:

Inside the building they had a touchy-feely tray full of nature’s treasures:

And a turtle shell.  Here’s the inside – it felt very smooth:

We decided to follow the Geology Trail:

And right away we were intrigued with the boulders and trees: 100_0226

Here’s a Black Cherry and a Maple growing together – they look like they’re kissing:

There’s nothing like the beauty of woods: 15Oct2006-013

There were several rock fences along the way, showing this was once property owned by individuals:

Here’s a hole that was covered up and filled in with stones – maybe an old well:

We saw this Woolly Bear catepillar (Pyrrharctia isabella) along the trail – I love Woolies:

A fallen tree:

And a tree with a great deal of fungus:

Another beautiful trail photo:

And last, but certainly not least, the most beautiful fall tree color I’ve seen yet this fall:

This fall is not one of our more colorful falls here – believe me, I’ve spent time looking for the great fall color I love, and I’m not finding it. Are you?

    Nice, nice, nice photos!
    I take photos of fungus too.

    We must be behind when it comes to fall color in Ohio. It’s comin’, but very very slowly.

    Thank you Susan! I love taking fungus photos. Some day when I have nothing else to blog about, I’ll get out my fungus photos from a couple of years ago.
    The fall color has been weird here this year.
    You’re welcome Laura! I love the woods – I could live in the woods.
