along the Barrier Free Trail
Lake Vesuvius Recreation Area
Ironton, Ohio

Well I'm ending up the wildflower season at nearly the place where I started the year out back in April with this Squirrel Corn photo.  The Barrier Free Trail is a nice calming place to visit with benches spaced fairly close together, making a great picnic spot.  Won't be long before I'll be able to photograph snow there, I suppose.   I'm planning for shots from local bicycle journeys through the winter, so maybe I can post more regularly than I have for the past few months.

 My current book is The Virginian by Owen Wister.  I first thought this was a 1950ish novel but come to find out, it is the granddaddy of all western novels having been published in 1902.  The writing style is, at times, eloquent and I stop to study just what he means.  But I've enjoyed it so far, going about 1/3rd of the way into it right now.   The 1962 to 1971 television show of the same name was based off the novel.  Here is the Wikipedia article on it.
