  • A leisurely afternoon in Robertsville State Park.
  • So many fine words devoted to autumn.

    None of them truly substitute for simply being there.
  • A short trail forms a loop back to one of the park roads.

    This leads down past the Roberts family cemetery that gives the local town and park its name.

    Down to the Meramec River.
  • I emptied my mind of all thoughts and bathed in the colors.

    Nothing more was needed.
