The Lake in Late Autumn

 Dripping Springs Lake

American Coots are these black birds riding out the waves.
 Marsh grasses waving in the wind.

This is a cut stone bench on the water’s edge where we stopped to rest.

These woods are made up of oak, mainly scrub oak and hickory trees.

 Rock work includes this retaining wall built in the 30’s or 40’s by the WPA.
Waves in water and waves in stone.
 A stone stairway down to the lakeside.
The upper part of the retaining wall along a parking spot.
 Oak leaves and rocks along the lake walk.
 Leave strewn path through the woods.

 Fallen log

 Hickory nuts nested in dry leaves on a lichen splotched rock.
 Not much color in Oklahoma woods, but every bit I savor.
 The water was stirred by the wind and deep blue in the afternoon sun. Another wall of rocks that has held  Okmulgee Lake for many years.
 Brown hills, blue winter sky and bluer lake.The lake looks so somber and different from its vivid green and blue of summer. Still with its oaks and rocks it is a beautiful place to explore.
