Fog rivers

Monday, October 15th, 2007

Got up early and watched fog rivers rolling from the little porch off our room off the Parkway.


Fall color series

Sunday, October 14th, 2007

Traveling again at last.

Am recently returned from a long day in the upper mountain counties with a botanist friend. Posts coming about that, but first a few examples of this fall’s color and other sundries collected on Saturday and on a Parkway drive last weekend. Up first, the rose hips of Rosa palustris Marshall — the Swamp Rose, photographed Saturday, Oct. 13 in Allegheny County. Following that a striped maple near Linville Falls photographed Oct. 7 and cranberries and sphagnum also photographed Oct. 13 in Allegheny County.
