Fall Colors Glorious on Tinker Mountain

This is me at the railroad, resting at the bottom of Tinker Mountain.
An apartment complex is being built right next to the trail that accessed the Appalachian Trail in Daleville. I am not happy.
This area floods and gets muddy, so the log trail is welcome.

When I catch up on story assignments, as I did yesterday, I often reward myself by taking the next day off to walk in the woods. Today’s hike was to Tinker Mountain where the fall’s colors are what one would expect for October 25: quite lovely.

Herewith a look at Tinker Mountain on a Friday during “leaf season.”

Nice reflections in the Tinker Mountain creek.
