My Parents Garden 

A full summers worth of weeding, mulching, pruning, and planting makes one last show of beauty.

A Whirlwind Autumn Exploration

Two days in the forests of Missouri.  My favorite things:

  • Puffy clouds of mist drifting over creeks and rivers in the morning
  • The distinct sweet smell of white oak forests
  • odd shapes of sassafras leaves changing from yellow to red to maroon
  • Eagles, kestrels, red-tailed hawks all searching for food
  • Cool clear streams

580 miles in two days.  10 state and national park sites.
