Mid August at Otter Pond

In this neck of the Mountains, hints of autumn are visible everywhere. The Sumac is already turning red. The Ironwood has tinted the roadsides an orange-red. Tulip Poplar has yellow leaves, and Blackberry vines turn orange and yellow after loosing all of their fruit. Even the Maples are aware of the approaching Fall.
