Waning Days Of Fall On Cliff Drive

 The waterfall (Carl DiCapo Fountain ) is off for the winter now and most of the leaves are gone.  
                                    Waiting for Spring along the Cliff Drive Scenic Byway.

Cliffhanger Run 5K And 10K

 The Cliffhanger 5k and 10k for 2019 races start and finish line in front of The Colonnade in Historic Northeast KC.  The route went along Cliff Drive and up Gladstone Boulevard.  The race is put on by the Kansas City Running Club and is a benefit for Northeast Neighbor to Neighbor  ( ). All the photos can be viewed here:   dl=0

 Warming up. 

 And they're off.  9am sharp

The Drive was lovely this time of year. 

 Chicken and Road.... do your own joke. :)

A Walk In The Woods

 Began the trek on the Indian Mound Trail... runs below Gladstone Boulevard from Cliff Drive to one block short of Indian Mound.

Above, Picnic Rock shows the tenacity of nature...paper, scissors, tree, rock.  I named it Picnic Rock because that's where Kelly and I would stop for lunch on our hikes.  It was flatter then.  Below, the Four Sisters.

 Finished up the walk by the Kansas City Museum.  The sun was setting.  Makes for long shadows and dramatic pix.

The Colors Of Reservoir Hill

                                      The Kansas City Museum from Reservoir Hill.

Nature is slowly reclaiming the interior and has a wonderful palette  to show for it.  Above, the northern half of the Reservoir. Below, the southern half of the Reservoir.

                 The cottonwoods are at their peak, including the Missouri State Champion, below.
