Skywatch Friday 80

A look at our skies this past week -- we are past peak color here, though a few trees were still showing off their Autumn Splendor.

West Grady Knoll, Grady Tract, UW Arboretum

Line of trees at Grady Tract, bordering Greene Prairie, UW Arboretum.

This fiery maple at a nearby park was still in fine splendor last
Sunday, but by Wednesday had already lost half its leaves.

Looking east across Curtis Prairie towards Lost City Forest, UW Arboretum.

Black tupelo tree next to Arboretum Visitor's Center.

Looking west across the sumac plantation at Curtis Prairie
towards Noe woods, UW Arboretum.

Window view on a dreary, overcast day . . .

Walking along the Capitol City State Bike Trail.
As you can see, most of  the trees are bare now.

I'm wishing I got out with my camera more. We aren't quite as far along as you, but if I don't hurry I'll miss it completely.
