Megan and I finished up the major raking today of our yard. Most of the Bur Oak leaves are piled on our devil's strip (aka tree lawn) waiting to be sucked up by the giant Worthington leaf machine. It is hard to believe that Thanksgiving is near, and Megan and I will be traveling to little pond Maine once again. It was only five weeks ago that we were there to witness the blaze of glory that is the north woods in fall. I took these series of images on the afternoon that we left. The light was muted by a thick layer of clouds, allowing the colors in the leaves, no longer shrouded by chlorophyll, to shine.
And finally, a view across the pond, showing the yellow tamaracks (a deciduous member of the pine family) that grow in the bog that rings Little Pond.
