Some photos of the changing season:
The poison ivy are about to lose their leaves. (Still bad to touch them, though.)
The maples near the gate are slowly moving toward their color shifts.
I decided to quit my raking of the path after I realized how much work was going to be falling from branches in the coming weeks. Still: they need to be raked so that they don't turn into muddy lanes come the spring.
Almost stepped on this guy as I was going back into the cabin. He wasn't any wider than my finger!
