One morning in October I took a drive over to the nearby Wilderness Center in Stark Co. to do some hiking and picture taking for future paintings. It was a gorgeous day. Perfect. As I was nearing the end of my hike I heard something falling from the trees. Maybe nuts or seeds. I never saw what it was, but when I looked up, this is what I saw. One red tree in the middle of green and gold.
