Phone Call

A kayaker braved the chilly day and cold water on the Portage River, but had to pull over to make a phone call. (Below the Boys' Dam in Three Rivers.)

Three Rivers Truck

Leaves, all shed

This enormous oak in the park has dropped all of its leaves. For scale, that's a horse tied up just behind and to the right of the tree. Some maples and elms still have leaves, and of course the various non-native plants decorating the parking lot continue to be baffled as to which season it is.

After the fall colors the leaves fall, and after the leaves fall there is raking, sweeping, blowing -- and, where still legal, burning.

Happy Birthday, Kathleen!!
