Yesterday I loaded up dog and camera and headed south on I-65 for an afternoon of leaf peeping in Bernheim Forest about 30 minutes from downtown Louisville. As you drive into the forest preserve there's a beautiful lake that is still showing some incredible fall color. It was hard to narrow down to a favorite shot so here are a couple more views:
After leaving the lake area I heading up into the forest. The drive up was a riot of fall color. Once in the forest, Willie and I walked some of the tree trails and captured the sun dappled foliage up close. We then ended our Bernheim experience with a walk out an observation deck that juts over the tree canopy. The canopy walkway rises 5 feet above the trees so you can actually look down into the treetops and also see to great distances where fall-colored trees meet a blue sky at the horizon.
Here's just one view. If you'd like to see more, just scroll down to the previous post, dated November 1.
