Today was a beautiful fall day for the first of November. We may not see any more days with temperatures in the upper 70’s, so we better enjoy it while we can. The fall foliage here in central Illinois is a few weeks behind the normal schedule this year. I made a detour on the way home through the Lake of the Woods Forest Preserve. There was great light and the color reflecting of the lake was beautiful this evening.
It was quite a breezy morning today, but the temperatures were mild and there will not be that many more days to enjoy the beautiful fall colors. Gayle and I ventured out for a walk in the woods on one of the paths through the Lake of the Woods Forest Preserve. I cannot believe we don’t do this a little more often as it is so close to home. There are several miles of asphalt path that wind through the woods in the park. We walked about a mile before turning around and heading back to our vehicle. Our walk in the woods was a very peaceful one. As you see in the photo above, the maples that lined the path still had many of their brightly yellow colored leaves.
