Symmetry Saturday: Umstead State Park

I'm pleased to say William B. Umstead State Park is about 5 miles from our front door.
We went out there to see the fall colors...
Most of leaves had 'turned' loose not 'turned' colors

foot bridge before the 'natural trail'.

Bridge and its reflection...I absolutely love this photo.  

 This trail was the most colorful...more sun there

Canoes in 'dry dock' til Spring

Same trail from the other side of the lake.

Ironically, on the way home we came in the back of our neighborhood.
We saw this gorgeous tree with the sun peeping thru the leaves of gold



  1. Another excellent beautiful. Had to chuckle when noticed the B. was spaced well away from the Umstead!

  7. What gorgeous pictures. Mother Nature does fine work.

  8. Beautiful pictures, Cecilia! The bridge and its reflection... great click! All lovely with some very pretty color. Very relaxing to just take them in.

  9. You found some lovely fall scenes. That water was so still allowing for beautiful reflections.

  10. That's such a pretty place and we really like that bridge photo lots!

  11. your leaves of gold are much like my house of gold yesterday... that is great you are so close to the state park. we used to hit all the state parks, we have 5 that are within 10 to 12 miles of us, but Bob can't walk any more and refuses to go have his knee looked at, so no more parks..

  12. It's good to see those Fall colors again. Ours are long gone and there's snow on the ground. At least the sun is shining today!

  13. Such a lovely place to hike and so photogenic

  14. Oh MY!! What wonderful pictures C, beautiful reflections and wonderful colors!!!

  15. Looks like lovely place and beautiful day.

  16. We are jealous. We got nothing but ice, snow and cold.

  17. I love your bridge with its reflection too! And the colors along that path were brilliant. You sure are lucky to have that park so close. Thanks for sharing with all of us who are now semi-permanently frozen!

  18. How wonderful to have a park so close to you, and it is so beautiful
