Mid-autumn on the west slopes of the Cascades.
A ten-mile outing north of the Columbia River Gorge on a cool, cloudy day.
Colorful leaves fallen from the hardwood trees.
Wildflowers and berries disappeared into the mist.
Ferns and many varieties of mushrooms now covering the forest floor.
Wild turkeys busy fattening up for the winter cold (or is it for Thanksgiving?).
