Black Moshannon State Park ~ Part 1

Two weeks ago we took a road trip to the mountains to visit Black Moshannon State Park. I was hoping the leaves were starting to change up there further in the higher elevations. I was not disappointed. I'm sure they are in full bloom now.

At the far end of the beach

motor boat stashed for the winter

water flowing between beach area and main part of the lake.

pretty pink mushroom I found on the forest floor

gorgeous shoreline

more beautiful shoreline across the lake too.

picnic anyone?

zoomed out a little further.
It was a gorgeous day. I did have a polarizer on the lens so the sky may be a bit bluer than for real.

Ok, so I've seen a few other blogger's do this... so I'm gonna try too.  Maybe it will help me with my time/visiting and I can still do a few small post's in between.

So many serene scenes. I think that mushroom is poisonous and it looks like it's been eaten!

I was just reading about polarizing filters yesterday and thinking about getting one...it's kinda like when I put my sunglasses over the lens of my camera...really cool effect! The colors are amazing and yes....I see that little pink mushroom!
Perfect Autumn Day -- just beautiful; wonderful mushroom. Loved this walk. Thanks for sharing it. We are enjoying Fall so much, watching the colors change (now in Oregon). I just hope it lasts a long time!
