October's Best

Fall color as seen from the overlook at Little Moreau Recreation Area in Dewey County on October 1st.
Here are twelve of my favorite photos from the month of October, 2013.  For those visitors to this blog who may be new, check out "January's Best" entry for the rhyme and reason of why twelve photos per month.  It will be an interesting task to cull the best of 2013 at the end of the year.  It's been a fun process so far.  As always, click on an image for a larger file to view and thanks for checking in!
