Aspen Leaf in Dehydrated Slimy Algae
We visited Barr Lake State Park today. We didn't have a lot of time, but we were able to take a little walk around. From the boardwalk, we could see sections of the wetlands (we called them swamps until the government people came) in which the water had receded. I don't know that this could really be called a traditional autumn picture. I stepped in, sat in, and cleaned this stuff off myself and the kids; funny how something so icky could look so interesting. Even after discovering its unique texture and goose-poop additions, it was still interesting to look at.
The school year has started. I'm not sure what Rorschach-ian interpretation would be given to my associating this picture to this event.
