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.
