TOWER OF POWER - Maple tree in our yard has burst out in color. The annual Fall color display seemed to start later this year - but is living up to its reputation.
FALL ON THE GRIDLEY - We took our annual Fall Foliage on the Gridley River float yesterday. The leaves along the water change first - so the spectacular Fall show always starts first along the water.
Phantasmagoric Fungi - A Fly Amanita mushroom on it's side along the trail to the beaver pond. The rain these last few months has brought out a multitude of mushrooms of various colors and sizes. The Amanita is deadly poisonous and I was taught to remember the name by thinking "I'm onna needa" go to the hospital if I eat this mushroom.
