Fall Creek Falls Camping Trip Part Two: October Gave a Party
Oh, how I love my mountains! Fall Creek Falls State Park is located on the Cumberland Plateau, a southeastern portion of the ancient Appalachians. The fall color hasn't reached its peak on the plateau yet; can you imagine what it will look like in a a few days?
I was reminded of a poem I read many years ago while taking these pictures. It's rather...corny... but it does give you the feel of the colorful leaves, the crisp breeze and change in the air. I especially love it when the wind blows and the leaves swirl about, drifting to the ground, like streamers at a party.
October gave a party;
The leaves by hundreds came-
The Chestnuts, Oaks and Maples,
And leaves of every name.
The Sunshine spread a carpet,
And everything was grand;
Miss Weather led the dancing,
Professor Wind, the band.

God is so good to give us such beauty. I thank Him for it.
