Looking at the sky from Dawes Arboretum


Well,we have had some of the best autumn weather I can remember here in Ohio. Soon enough it’s all going to be either grey or gray. For today’s SKYWATCH FRIDAY a trip back to Dawes Arboretum.



Welcome to The Dawes Arboretum


The Arboretum now covers nearly 1,800 acres and includes eight miles of hiking trails and a four-mile Auto Tour.


But soon we will have:


I’m not ready for the snow are you?? I think I’ll have another picnic.



Starting to feel a little gnarly so I’ll say goodbye for today


Project1 and appreciate you stopping by. Make sure to explore skies from around the world at SKYWATCH FRIDAY

I like pictures that show the same place in different seasons, like the two you showed of the lake.

That is one heck of an arboretum. Great pics.

Oh, oh, oh, how lovely.
Just for me, I don't mind snow. I haven't seen it for too many years and our stinking hot weather is coming on again.

Love your fall shots and look forward to the snow ones as well.

Hi Joe, What a neat place. I love arboretums--and Dawes Arboretum obviously is a great place to go for hiking and picnicking.

I love SNOW---but don't really want any until Christmas... I would love a white Christmas... Want to send me one????

Great Autumn trees in the series of photos, I really like the inclusion of the map at the end.
Have a wonderful Autumn before the snow arrives!

I love the comparisons, Joe.
Fun visiting from here in my chair. Fighting a cold in this cold, damp November weather.
