Boyle Ravine Scenes

 On Tuesday I didn't have time to leave town, but I did manage to take a brief hike with camera up Boyle Ravine.  The most dominant Fall Colors up there were the Big Leaf Maples, mostly turned bright yellow punctuated with spots of a beautiful black, gray, and green virus.  There were a few Dogwoods, too, but not brilliant red like happens in some years.
 Every now and then the basic brown ground cover is decorated by bird feathers, this one a Steller's Jay, and tasty-looking acorns.
 Most of the California Black Oak leaves turn a deep orange, but a few trees just below the big green water tanks have turned bright red.
