A favorite area to sit and listen to the river while enjoying a nice lunch.
The CCC was responsible for making beautiful parks all over the country. It was a regimented hard working group who knew no job that couldn't be done. This is at Lacey-Keosauqua State Park in Southeast Iowa. Years ago I had found the foundations of the bunk houses used by these men and wasn't sure what it's purpose was. There are lots of stories to be heard about this beautiful park. The county it is in has no fast food places or any stoplights. At Misty's in Keosauqua a small soft serve ice cream is one dollar. I'll have Black Raspberry please, and sometimes call it lunch. One time I ordered a medium and the girl was set back a bit because I never had, I always ordered a small. She almost had to redo it.
Fall is a time when the fauna opens up and you see a variety of fungus growing in the forest.These almost reminded me of peacock feathers.
This was full of water like a wash basin.
A figure eight served as a table for a squirrel or chipmunk eating hickory nuts.
Lots of Bittersweet Vine opening up it's beautiful seed pods. I used it as Christmas garland last year. As a child it was used around a Thanksgiving/Fall wicker cornucopia in my home, full of home grown gourds. A fall ritual would to go cut a few dry floral bouquets and look for the Bittersweet with my mother.
All over the land.
You are just wearing me out
