Autumn Photo Log, Part II

It's been a beautiful, summery October. Here's more photos from the last few weeks.  The Appalachian Trail winds through the surrounding counties. Here's the road leading up to the AT in Giles County:

We've had several foggy mornings, not uncommon in the New River Valley. One morning was particularly nice. Here's the backyard in the early morning fog:

Another in the ongoing photo stream of Asta:
The umpteenth (and counting) picture of Asta.

One evening I took several photos of Barrie, but the light was way too red (note to self: check the white balance before taking photos). Converting to black and white worked well.

While driving home one day I spotted this pumpkin truck. How festive!

We took a trip last weekend to visit our friends Edwin and Carole and their boys, Andrew and Michael. We all went to the Apple Fall Festival in Waynesville, where Michael surveyed the apple critter art:

Michael, quite the Beatle fan.
A few close ups, messin' around with the macro lens. This is a mandala kaleidoscope/coaster that I bought at the Art Institute of Chicago. Cool to look at and spin, but not so good at being a coaster:

I'll end this photo set with a basic food item:
Don't be without it.

These are fabulous Gene! I especially love the pumpkin truck shot and the ones of Barrie and Michael. You'll have to take some at the show!
