With the 52 degree morning, Otter Pond also has a light mist moving across the water. Colors are beginning to appear throughout the woods.

Walking back towards home, the Dogwood catch my eye in the woods. They are always the first to turn red as Autumn approaches. Dick’s Mountain is on the horizon.
