September Scenery

We took a walk along the Paul Bunyan Trail, north of Hackensack MN, on a gorgeous day in mid September. This post simply intends to share some of the views from along the way.

Virginia creeper and its similar species Woodbine are vines that can strangle their ‘hosts’. Also their berries are toxic to humans. In these pictures its red leaves contrast nicely with the yellow leaves of an ash.
