Crow’s Nest: Now with fewer leaves!
By Daniel Barringer, Preserve Manager
Actually, there are just as many, they’ve just moved from the trees to the ground.
The preserve is still spectacular after the storm, just different. In the valley this morning, mist.
The view from Northside Road; the mist is in the valley at Harmonyville Road.
Tuliptrees are at peak color, glowing candles of the forest.
A highbush blueberry looks bright in the northern meadows.
Dawn illuminated the underside of these red maple leaves.
Dusk was also beautiful.
Red oaks are now at peak, as are the yellows of beech. Others species are totally bare—the progression of the season.
