The water is running a little high

Recent rains have kept the river a little higher than usual.

But not this high (you may have seen this one making its rounds on the Internet) ...

Bright colors

A late afternoon in mid-October is  beginning to bright colors to the riverbank.

Panoramas from cell phone

A little crazy how they stitch together, but you get the idea.

The Gum tree

 Not so long ago, this little fella' was discovered in the adjoining field as a five-foot tree.

We thought of kidnapping and transplanting him;  but we let him stay where Mother Nature place him.

Look at me now!

October Neighbors'

 October brings some fall colors.  Look at that maple by the house.
Nice blue sky this day.

Garden Cottage gets workshop

The Garden Cottage got itself a workbench, shop light, & clean windows.

Just sit in the Tracker when you want to take a break ("Ooh, my back is tired")

Nostalgia: see the Garden Cottage when it was growing up.

Early morning fog

Particularly as summer turns to fall, the River is blanketed with fog during the night.  Get up early and you can see it.  Sleep in, and it will have disappeared.
Got up early this morning and saw the fog on the River.  The sun was rising, but not yet over the hills to the east.
The early morning fog seems to make the River mysterious.  Looking downriver, one is reminded of Sherlock Holmes and the scenes we're seen in movies of rural England.  How 'bout for you?


Across Hurricane Creek, heading into town, was the site of a tractor show featuring many older tractors.  Many were well maintained or well restored.  Listen to the sounds of their engines... almost peaceful.
Tractors are an important part of life along the Buffalo River.
Come back again soon!
