|rosehips and the leaves are still quite green. (click to view larger)|
There was this huge slope by the parking lot that was just loaded with wild rose bushes. Much of the rosehips were filled with tall sage. I need to go out in the summer and see the roses in bloom - this 'patch' was ENORMOUS. It must have been buzzing with bees!

The colors were amazing. Once I got up to the lookout point, here was the view!
I believe that these yellow trees are in fact an 'island' in the South Saskatchewan River. Am I right? I'm pretty sure there is water running behind it out there. The foreground shows the trees on my side of the bank (see the green tips?). So there is a lot of river between where I am standing and the yellow trees below. On the way back, I changed lenses and took this one. The sign out there refered to them as blue grama grass? I thought I heard the Grasslands interpreter say they were nicknamed, 'grandma's eyelashes'. lol That's pretty cute.

Below... what are these? They sure look like my raspberry bushes. hmmm. I am curious.
I personally adore the photo below. The colors are so soft and 'antique'.

Happy Sunday! Enjoy your autumn. : )
