We live in a place of pure, raw beauty.
Local Photographer, David Nelson stuns us all with just how lucky we are. You can see more of his amazing images here on his Facebook. Derek Richardson shows us his talent and the beauty of Brookside Park in the fall with this photo and the beautiful featured photo!
Locals weighed in on drives to bask in the foliage (they’re not in any order). If you have any of your own, add them in the comments below. I hope you find a drive to take in the next few weekends that makes you smile.
