Indian Springs Metropark




We had a rainy and mosquito-ridden walk at Indian Springs Metropark yesterday. There was some early fall color. It was quite cool, a sudden change from the hot weather we've been having. We walked from the Nature Center out to Timberland Lake.

Hi Mary,

Beautiful pictures. And the colours of the leafs are gorgeous. Autumn in all its colours and shapes can sometimes be even more beautiful than summer.

Great captures. Thanks for sharing with us.

Happy Saturday!

Best regards
Asta

Great shots, Mary! The colors are super and the lighting is perfect. I think I could spend quite a bit of time in Indian Springs Metropark!

Do you know how long the trail is? Can one bike or jog along it?

Thanks so much Asta, Goda, Rose, Blue Star and Jacob for your very kind comments. I think that trail is 3 miles long; its a nature trail for hiking only. There is a hike-bike trail that runs parallel and close and you can cross over for the final bit to the lake.

Most of the joggers run on the hike-bike trail, but I have seen some on the walking trails.

The leaves are just starting to turn, but we did see quite a few. I would say only 1-2% color so far.
