Thanksgiving Nature Walk

This year our traditional American Thanksgiving dinner is scheduled for 6 pm Friday, so on this beautiful, sunny 72-degree Thanksgiving Day we were able to enjoy a walk in the nature preserve connecting our neighborhood with the next one over. The leaves are still brilliant with fall color. 

We spotted wild ginger, and an old summertime squirrel's nest. 

The American Beech leaves are mostly their lovely brown hue but some are still changing.

We walked along South Peachtree Creek and noticed how the sky is reflected in the water. Today the sky is a dark blue. 

We found an old rock cairn; it wasn't a chimney. 

These photos were just taken by gardengeri and David Laufer.
