The leaves weren't turning colors just yet, but the squirrels were out in full force, storing walnuts in the ground to prepare for the long winter. I tried to get a good picture, but the buggers ran away whenever I got close.
A few vines and trees were changing color. These red leaves caught my eye.
There was literally a rainbow of colors just waiting to be discovered. I love these three shades together -- red, green and yellow.
As if the squirrels weren't entertaining enough, I found a possum curled up in the grass, obviously frightened by the bicyclist who just whizzed by.
The sky was misty, so it was hard to get a great picture of the scenery. I took advantage of a break in the trees to snap this photo of the reflection on the Big Creek Reservior.
