Fall Colors 2012

Due to our early spring and super-dry summer, fall has come early this year.  Today was a beautiful day to enjoy the explosion of colors.  Ledges State Park was recently re-opened after the floods of 2008, so we decided to check it out.  Lots of folks were enjoying the mild weather and the beautiful fall colors.  Yup, this is proof that Iowa is more than just corn fields.

One of my personal favorites.  My husband is peeking out behind the tree.  Love it!

Ledges is known for is soft sandstone bluffs.  The trees grow on top of the rocky formations.

We seldom see these brilliant oranges and deep reds.....

 One the way home, I caught a couple of scenes with the brilliant yellows.  The dark reds are sumac.
