Fall, Walk in the Woods, Myles Standish State Forest, Plymouth, Massachusetts, USA



The Myles Standish State Forest in Plymouth covers a 26-square mile area with rolling terrain, many kettle ponds, and miles of pitch pine and scrub oak forests. It was very quiet on this fall weekday - perfect for a walk in the woods.



This cool looking mushroom was growing in the shade in a bed of pine needles.



A tall pine waving in the soft breeze - that distinctive hissing sound like nothing else in the world.



A wide trail covered in a spongy surface of fallen pine needles.



Reflections in one of the many kettle ponds.



It is quiet today - only the gentle breeze through the pines.



The nearby maples are starting to explode in color as the days grow shorter.



I think humans must be hard-wired to appreciate fall. I don't know anyone who doesn't find nature's annual show to be one of the great wonders of life.



Yep, pretty special.
