Ken and I try to go every fall  as it is only a half hour drive and each time we are amazed and in awe of the sights  and sounds  of this beautiful place . We went yesterday early morning and spent the morning gazing and taking photos !!

Lots of wild purple asters and golden rod  in the fields and at the edges of the cliffs where lots of butterfly’s and bees gather . The weather was perfect , sunny with cool breezes ! This year I didn’t see as many Monarch's there  as last year !

But the sights and sounds were still wonderful of the nature that was there and the sounds of the water gently slapping  and swishing on the  shore !
