This week I stuck to the bike path for brisk walks rather than rambling up into the woods.
I passed the culvert where the path into the woods begins.
I continued on down the paved trail covered with yellow and brown leaves that sent up the acrid smell of fall.
Eventually the oaks came into view. This small wooded parkland contains the remanents of an oak savannah.
The sky above them was dramatic.
