The Best Trees In Forest Park

Forest Park 2015-10-25 1

Fall color is hit and miss here. We need the right amount of rain and a little bit of cold weather. This year it's been dry as a bone for a few weeks and we haven't had a freeze. Most of the trees are dull brown.

But there is a small area in Forest Park that holds a grove that always blazes red and yellow in October. What could it be, the species or the soil? These are a couple of shots taken on Sunday.

Tomorrow is the 50th anniversary of the completion of the Arch. It will not go unmarked.

Great shots, especially the first. The colors are very exuberantly and the sky marvelous.

Gorgeous! Our trees started to lose their leaves almost as soon as they turned.

I love the fall colors. I do miss seeing them this time of year.

Beautiful, particularly that first one.

Our fall colours peaked around the Thanksgiving weekend here, but there are still some good colours to be found.

That first photo is a very good Autumn snap.
