Fernhill 

We continued our meandering through the Fernhill area and checked out the Fernhill Wetlands.

  1. Beautiful reds and yellows and liked the contrast with the big old tree with no leaves that looked like an oak. I have some neat pictures taken from a campground in LA with gorgeous colors also. They make beautiful pictures and you certainly have a knack for catching the essence of the scenery. Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours!!
