Salmon Run Road is all but abandoned this time of year. There was one person out walking for his health and a few boaters were much farther down the road but that’s far less than summer. I went to see the empty lake bottom and some of the abandoned foundations of the flooded civilization that used to be there. The barren landscape would be a great analog to Mars in some places. ( Photos to be posted at a later time)
On the way back out I spotted the Red Oak clinging tightly to its last few clumps of leaves. The red in contrast with the blue sky was a very soothing sight after the dry lake bed. I rolled down the window and soaked in the cool breeze and fresh air. Small buntings hop about through the denser twigs. Only the rattle of dry leaves gives away their presence as they hunt. A sudden gust of wind sweeps through the leaves on the ground get up and dance before coming to rest in the duff of the forest floor. For a few minutes I forgot that I was stopped in the middle of a public road until another truck was coming in sight from the other direction and it was time to move on.
