Image of a witch's face created on a tree by autumn leaves and the gate light.  Nearly 40 feet tall!  A week later, she was gone.  A storm blew the canopy away.

The fall colors are less popular here than in New England or the smokies.  However, our vantage, in the Illinois Ozarks, offers quite a spectacular alternative. 

      A refreshing break from summer.  But winter's blowing in...

Midnight at a Thanksgiving campfire.

Cowgirls.  Brought their own guns.  They took everything but my boots!
