The wind carries the fallen leaves to the tracks that cross the Kanawha River. The peak color was just starting to wane as I gaze across the Appalachian Mountains of West Virginia. The hills seem to rejoice in their beautiful celebrationlebration of the season. The tracks call to me with an invitation to come and explore the seldom seen wonders that are hidden beneath a vibrant canopy of warm colors. Beyond the river and behind the houses a moss laden forest houses thick clumps of ferns, old stumps that full of mushrooms and twisted vines wrapped around old growth oaks. The mists hang around the grove like a curtain and provide a perfect sanctuary. That’s where the big buck lives. His crown bares 12 tines and his hot breath billows like the stack on and old train. Silently he patrols the grove warding off all rivals. He charges up and stops just short of the tracks that mark the edge of his realm. The big buck gives a defiant snort and us soon off into the misty woods. What wonders these hills hold indeed.
