Cardinal and woodpecker meeting at the feeder

It was a beautiful afternoon just after a snow storm when a few Blue Jays fluttered about in the backyard. This one loved to pose for the camera.

Our first hike to Huckleberry Lake in the Wolf Lake State Forest in St. Lawrence County. An easy 1.7 mile out-and-back led to a ledge over the still-as-a-mirror lake.

We saw this beautiful sunset from a campsite at Meacham Campground.

We visited Meacham Lake and got a great picture of the hills.

I was driving down the road, and I saw some really nice fall colors. The trees almost made a mini tunnel over the road, and it looked like a great picture opportunity.

This beautiful view was at Ausable Point.
