We started our walk from the parking lot at the Dickerson Conservation Center on Halloween Sunday. We walked towards the Monocacy Aqueduct. The colors were rather dull. It took a while for the sun to emerge.
Later on during the walk, we ran into some young people dressed up for Halloween.We saw them a couple of times on the trail. They looked like they had actually walked a significant distance.
The trail was mostly green, but we encountered a few trees with yellow. We have come to the realization that a lot of the yellow is due to the turning of the Pawpaw trees.
We crossed the Monocacy Aqueduct but did not quite get to Noland Ferry before we turned back. The river was running a little high that morning. I have taken so many pictures from this perspective that I neglected to take another one that morning.
I liked this picture of Spinks Lock (Lock 27) with its lock house. The lock lies just beyond the power station at Dickerson.
My eyes were drawn to this sight of the drying leaves of a sycamore tree up in the sky, caught in the early morning light. The blue and the white in the sky provided a nice contrast to what we were seeing on the trail.
