Yesterday morning we decided to get up early and go down to the Ross Barnett Reservoir and take in some Fall color.
So with coffee in hand out the door we went at 6:40. It was a beautiful sunny morning with a temperature in the high 40's.The reservoir runs along side the Natchez Trace Parkway which is about 5 minutes from our house. On some mornings I take this route to work. It allows for such a great start to my day.
The trees are showing lots of color now. It's almost like this happened overnight.I had really hoped to just park and observe but instead we drove on down the road to check things out.It's a good thing there were no other cars around. We would drive a mile or so and then I'd ask him to stop so I could snap a pic.If anyone had been around they would have wondered what that crazy lady was doing running back and forth across the road. Actually, my hubbie probably thought I was crazy but I was having such a great time!This was the last place we parked before heading back home. Sometimes you can see wildlife such as deer, eagles, hawks and wild turkeys. We didn't see any yesterday but we did see some herons.
In the summer there is lots of boating and fishing that goes on. It's nice that you can just pull up to the side of the reservoir in your vehicle.
We had a really nice morning yesterday, hope you enjoyed the visit.
