These images were taken Oct. 7, 2010, at Indigo Lake in the Cuyahoga Valley National Park in Summit County (near Akron, Ohio). Nikon D-90, 28-270 mm zoom lens. ISO 400, varying shutter speeds, mostly very fast. Fall colors might be a little late this year, after a very warm and mostly dry September. Some trees are already naked, while others are still fully green. I guess someone forgot to tell the trees it’s time to winterize. They’ll figure it out themselves soon enough.
And a train!
The Cuyahoga Valley Scenic Railroad has a summer program that allows bicyclists to hitch a one-way ride on the railroad for $2 per rider. Riders can bike along the Towpath until they get flat tired, or a flat tire, then hop on the train back to their starting point along the trail. And remember, kids love trains!
