A Very Pleasant Lunch Break

Among several work-related tasks today was to attend a meeting at Hartman Reserve Nature Center. Our discussions focused on water quality and water quantity – really, how do we improve both without breaking the bank? The contents of the discussions could fill a page or more. I will leave that for another post.    

Perhaps the highlight of my day was my lunch break enjoyed before the conference. Instead of remaining inside, I opted to go for a hike on the Hartman Reserve trail system. My views in all directions were very pretty due to the light dusting of snow frosting the autumn scenes.

Without a doubt my favorite views were of a tree with pink leaves in the late fall/early winter settings. I think you will recognize the scene as you scroll through the images recorded today.
