NATURE WATCH: Woodlands Splashed With Red

by Nona Estrin

Red maple and ash still stunning deep red and purple, the yellows and oranges of sugar maple not far behind. Today, familiar woodland ways were transformed in late afternoon by golden light that surrounded us and seemed to penetrate everything. Coming home we picked chanterelles the color of that light, at the edge of a wetland. It’s odd, but we almost didn’t go walking as the day seemed drab and damp!
