Encountered the three "attack wiener dogs" again! This time they kept their distance. Maybe they remembered my hiking staff!
Trees appear to be just passed prime in their fall attire. Some hickories have already dropped their leaves. I hiked the trails on a carpet of brown and gold with flecks of red -- more beautiful than the grandest man-made structure. Witnessed the occasional "sprinkle" of leaves - one of my favorite sights of the Fall. Was a peaceful and worshipful time. Prayed for several people and churches. It doesn't get much better than Fall in the forest. Thank YOU, GOD, for this wonder.
