Where I'm From....

Where I'm From...
A bloggie friend of mine, Just Pure Lovely, has come up with Where I'm From Weekend once per month. It's really neat to see where all these other bloggers live. I LOVE seeing the rest of the United States, since I haven't seen much more than where I'm from. It does make me look around and appreciate the beauty that surrounds me, as well. I'm sorry that this month's pictures are autumn, since it is now May....I've just been so busy I haven't had much time to take nature pictures....I promise to do better next month!
This is the fog lifting off one of our ponds about 7am on a cool fall morning.
This is an old walking bridge at a local state park called Natural Falls. This was also taken in the autumn, as you can tell by the colors.
I know this looks like just some autumn leaves, but if you look closely towards the upper right corner you will see an Eagle. They are abundant where I live. Some people come to see the eagles and I keep thinking, what is the big deal? But I've grown up seeing them pretty much daily, LOL.
This is one of the waterfalls at the same local state park.
This is a picture down our road. That's one thing about living in the Ozarks...you have autumn colors like no where else. The beautiful reds, oranges, yellows, and deep browns are like no other place. When driving south through the Boston Mountains it is breathtaking to look out and see neverending hills of autumn colors.

Loved seeing your photos! I added your link to Mr Linky at this page: http://justpurelovely.typepad.com/justpurelovely/2008/05/where-do-you-li.html
Thanks to my mess-up, yours is the only one on that page right now. But, more spotlight on you, yay!!

Beautiful pictures. I'm still amazed by the eagles.
I think we live in one of the most beautiful places, and I've had the opportunity to travel. The only places that tie with our Ozarks are the beaches at Monterey Bay, CA and the Dungeness River in front of the mountains in Sequim, WA.
Gorgeous. We do have a fine Creator, don't we? :-)
