I like the way the leaves fall and the way they arrange themselves on the ground. I like the way they get wet from the morning dew and stick together like best friends. I like the way the sun shines on leaves.
Many people in Minnesota like to visit the haunted houses that are created for Halloween. These places are designed to be scary and fun. In Duluth, they have a haunted ship.
The ship is flying the Jolly Roger.
There is a warning sign before you climb aboard the ship. I think I will avoid this haunted ship. Too scary for me!
The other morning was a bit frosty and I saw some animal tracks on the trail in the park. I think the tracks are from a weasel or a raccoon.
Recently, I went for a walk around the pond. I noticed that some of the trees are still very colorful and some have already dropped their leaves.
I really enjoyed looking at this maple tree. It was a cloudy day and I liked the soft colors.
The forest next to the pond was quiet. I found plenty of leaves on the ground and plenty of leaves still hanging on the trees.
And that is how October feels to me. I am still hanging on to summer memories and at the same time, I am ready to let summer fall away.
Sometimes I don’t need to go very far to find a great photo. Here’s a view of the colorful trees on a street in my neighborhood.
