Late Fall in Echo Valley

Oak leaves float along a spring-fed waterway in Iowa's Echo Valley State Park near Fayette. While air temperatures are certainly cold enough for ice and snow formation, the lack of falling precipitation continues to reinforce the year old drought. Last week Iowa's state climatologist actually predicted a worse drought in 2013 based on over a hundred years of state climate records. Hope not.


  1. I'm just going to ignore that devastating drought prediction - - - can't face that for our beloved midwest just yet.

    I'm still hoping for LOTS O SNOW all winter long.

    This photo of the leaves on water is simply breath-taking.

  2. This is an absolutely gorgeous photo.
