Just Another Walk in the Park

Our Fall foliage has reached the tipping point between peak color and bare trees; the percentage of naked branches is starting to increase and lots of leaves are falling. And not just leaves; acorns, Black Walnuts, and Osage Oranges are bombing the Dykeman Walking Trail under the trees. This time of year wearing a hard hat for a hike in the woods  in these parts is a wise move. Lace up your boots, settle the hat on your head, and come along on a walk in the park.
