French Creek State Park, Berks County, Pennsylvania
This weekend was a perfect time for a hike in French Creek State Park. This is the last hike before Hurricane Sandy pummels our area and likely takes down the last remnants of Autumn leaves. It was a surprisingly warm day, a bit of misty rain in the morning and some cloud cover, but otherwise very pleasant hiking weather.
Grey clouds over Hopewell Lake in the morning, but the brilliant colors of Autumn are still here.
Much of the trail is under forest cover. I felt surrounded by the gorgeous yellow, orange and crimson colors of the season.
I love the smells of Autumn, and the sound of leaves crunching underfoot.
Vivid yellow everywhere.
