DP- Trees

Gosh I have a lot of photos of trees. Since it is fall, I’ll stick with the trees in fall color, or close to it. I have to start with the Talimena Drive  that runs from the SE Oklahoma border into S Western Arkansas. It’s a beautiful drive any time of the year, but it’s oh so special when the leaves are turning on the trees. According to the website above, the peak of the fall turn is expected to be around October 19- November 4th.  It’s not just the trees that are beautiful. The views from the top of the mountain ridge are incredible.  If you’re in the area, I highly recommend the drive.

These photos were taken the last week of October in 2010.





This is a little road that we found that was off of the drive.



The intense colors in greens, reds, orange, and yellow make these trees so magnificent.


Another place that is really cool is the Crystal Bridges Museum of Art and gardens. It is located outside of Bentonville, Arkansas. It is a non-profit organization and was founded by Alice Walton, daughter of Sam Walton who started Wal-Mart. There is no fee to get in to the museum or the grounds. It’s a beautiful place with lots of phenomenal art. I definitely want to go back when the gardens are in full bloom.  Since this post is about trees, I’ll focus on the photos I took while walking the grounds. However, this is a photo of an aerial shot taken of the museum.

This is around the first week of November.


A beautiful path through the grounds.
