Autumn Splendor at Mueller Park...

I always love seeing all of you ladies beautiful photos of your trips to your lakeside cottages or summer homes or cabins... we do not have a home at a lake, or a cabin, however we do have a beautiful canyon just ten short minutes away from us called Mueller Park Canyon... it is National Forest property and absolutely breathtaking, especially this time of year... we rode up there several days ago, when the sky was a brilliant blue and the colors of Autumn simply stunning... the trees sometimes lean to the west due to the severe east canyon winds we often get here... these trees in the first photo make an arch over the road... I always feel like I am entering a truly enchanted forest...


















This last photo is my favorite... hope you enjoyed my little Autumn splendor post... Bisous...

Gorgeous photos and I'm just going to have to enjoy fall through you! It was in the 90's here this weekend and I haven't seen a gorgeous fall tree anywhere in sight!

Looks brilliantly colorful Julie, I have never been up that way I might need to take a walk. Except I heard a cougar was chasing a bicyclist the other day, was that in the same area?

Thanks for sharing these beautiful pictures. There is something about the colors of autumn that no other season can boast. La nature est un merveilleux cadeau de Dieu! (nature is a marvelous gift from God).

Sweet blessings!

Hi Julie, What beautiful pics you share and captured so wonderfully with your camera. The colors are magnificent. I love to see the change of colors in the Fall but here in Texas it is not as brilliant. Still pretty green here.
I too love the last photo. You are very talented with the camera.

Guess what~~ I am nearly finished with your 3pc Pumpkin set. I'll let you know soon.
Have a great night and thank you for sharing your beautiful Fall splendor.
Hugs, Celestina Marie
