Lion’s Den Gorge After the Rain

Meteorologically speaking, it’s still summer. But only until tomorrow. Around here, summer’s glory is rapidly fading and being replaced by the inevitable decay of fall. Plant life is succumbing to the relentless march of the seasons. Before long, only naked trees will stand before the wind, and the fields and prairies will assume their lifeless dormancy throughout the coming winter.

Last night’s rain has come and gone. This morning dawned cloudy and a bit foggy. Perfect conditions to lure me out with my camera to behold the beauty of God’s creation, freshly washed. Today’s destination was Lion’s Den Gorge, a local nature preserve situated on the bluffs above the Lake Michigan shoreline. Here’s what graced my viewfinder today.
