Sturgeon River Gorge and some ducks!

Back out in the autumn woods today....
some photos taken before we got our dusting of snow!

Although the lighting was bad
and made the pond shimmer,
I still wanted to capture
these ducks playing in the sun:

We took a ride to a place we haven't been in a long while...

Sturgeon River Gorge.

It is a gorge over looking a long, winding rive
and for our part of the country, it is a pretty deep gorge.

Of course, the minute I got there, I wished we had gotten the photos when the leaves
were in full color.
So, I put a mental note to remember to do it NEXT year.

But it was still remarkably pretty.

I loved how the trees looked like little dustmops over the now golden forest floor:

See the river, far below?:

Looking through the trees at the hills and wilderness beyond:

Love, love, LOVE this spot!:

No civilization for miles and miles!:

We will definitely return here for some spring and fall photos...
maybe we will see some eagles soaring....

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!!!
