Another recent cycle to an area school with sufficient time to take along the camera (does camera slow you down too?). A fine 15 or so mile pedal through rural Fordtown and Boones Creek area, with plenty of frosty views...

Have pedaled past a fine view down into Fordtown and across the nearby hills many times, but usually in too much of a hurry to stop and enjoy the view. This time timing was just right, and the right time for a bright dawn across the hills as well...

Heavy dew, log fog and low sun made for some interesting damp landscapes...

I wonder how many cows have enjoyed the shade of this old Oak on the hillside pasture?

Our cool autumn mornings warm up quickly - return trip was rich in bright sun. Was surprised to see a few insects out and active (Katydid and Pearl Crescent).

Brighter weather made it easier to see the human landscape as well. Here's an old shed on Boone Station Road, showing some signs of its years of providing storage space...

Another old shed in Fordtown, and an old schoolhouse (the Berea School) along Boone Station Road...

One of the simple pleasures of this late autumn season here in East Tennessee are all the ripe seeds. Nature education with school children these days nearly always includes letting them help the natural world, using their "hot air" to disperse native seeds. Here are some ripe Cat Tail seeds and ripe Wild Clematis seeds, just waiting for a group of 1st graders to start playing (and learning...)

Don't usually have the time (or take the time) to snap a few shots while out cycling, but hope you enjoyed the "fruits" of this ride. Thanks for any comments & critique!

Very nice, mole. I'm blown away by these images. Not sure if might just be my new laptop that arrived this week. This is my first visit to the page and/or looking at any photos.

I think the milkweed are my favorites.
