At last

This photo, taken very early on a recent morning, looks like it could be any number of places, but it was taken in southern Rhode Island. Fall arrived last week, bringing with it my favorite hiking opportunities.

I enjoy looking at ensembles of plants in the fall, but I always take time to appreciate the wild asters, which I think are stunning right now.

Speaking of ensembles, this meadow scene looked like it had been painted against the sky.

Although we are experiencing a strange (and for me unpleasant) little heatwave at the moment, fall is usually a great time to get out on the trails because you can actually hike without wanting to pass out from the heat and humidity.

If you get out before the dew evaporates, you can enjoy things like this spider web on a pine.

Or on the grass.

The goldenrod, so important to monarch butterflies, is resplendent this year.

Happy fall everybody.
