I drove back past Island Lake, the rather boggy lake I discovered last month, and even with no sun it was beautiful in a November sort of way.
There's something about the way the vegetation and the water weave in and out that appeals to me.
And in a backwater on the south side I found a whole stand of Tamarack, also called Larch. These are one of the few conifers that drop all their needles for the winter. They offer a little late season gold to the landscape.
It's needles are very short and hug the stems in little bunches.
The rain didn't catch me, I voted, and I found all but one of my cases. We just won't mention the flat tire.
