Furnace Run Metropark, Oak Trail

Today, I hiked the Oak Trail at Furnace Run.   It was also our first dusting of snow for the year.  The teasel trees along the interstate were little puffs of cotton.  I wish I could have gotten a photo of them.

And one shot of a red-berried tree at Seiberling Nature Realm, where I picked up my 2011 shield for my hiking stick, on completion of the Fall Hiking Spree Challenge.
