A revisit to Hidden Falls

Hidden Falls autumn_StaatsAs the calendar moves further into autumn, so too our seasons and landscape.  Leaves are turning and cascading to the ground.  The smell in the air is much different now.  And people and animals are scurrying to get ready for winter.  Yesterday we stopped at Nerstrand Big Woods State Park near the central part of Minnesota.  I had been there earlier in June when the water was rushing over Hidden Falls, but yesterday was much different.  The greens of spring had been replaced with the browns and golds of fall, with leaves scattered all around.  Prairie Creek was but a shadow of its spring profile, with only a small amount of water cascading over the rocks.  Even the sounds of the water, the trees, and the animals are quieter as the seasons shift gears.
