Southern Illinois: First quick shot

MARION, Ill.–The softwoods are already turning, the hardwoods should be in the next days or a week. So this weekend should be prime for color in southern Illinois.

I took this shot Sunday afternoon while we were doing a tour of Crab Orchard National Wildlife Refuge.

I am spending three days doing the stuff of a getaways in Williamson County.

Yesterday was fishing Lake of Egypt. I was worried about the high sky post frontal day, but we caught bass, including two in that 2 1/2-3 pounds.

More on that later.

Today, I am hitting Crab Orchard, then heading home.

A packed, busy time, but good fun.
