Fort DuPont State Park

This is a beautiful but dilapidated building at the old Fort DuPont, now a state park, in Delaware City, Delaware. I do love some old buildings and was glad that someone was actually restoring this one.

Burgess Falls

This is the amazing and powerful Burgess Falls. It is in Burgess Falls State Park near Sparta, Tennessee. We had a great day to see it and really enjoyed the trail down to the falls and the beautiful fall colors. I was actually there a few days ago, but just got around to pulling up these photos today.

Autumn Leaves in Baxter State Park

This is a photo of one of my favorite places: Baxter State Park. I love the dirt roads, the beautiful trails and all the ponds and lakes that dot the park. I also love that nobody ever seems to be there. This is the park road with some amazing yellow foliage.
