Thanksgiving: Not Just a Day, But a Season

Thankful for the Beauty of Nature in Autumn

On a recent trip to New York City, I joined my son, Nathan, for a walk/hike through Van Cortland Park. This park of more than 1,000 acres is in the northwest Bronx. It’s accessible from Manhattan by subway. And, though it isn’t far away from civilization, Van Cortland Park offers some restful, beautiful woodland paths.

Today, I’m thankful for the beauty of nature, especially the stunning colors of autumn. In early November, the red leaves have mostly turned to brown, but the yellows and golds are striking in their vividness. The following pictures of Van Cortland Park were taken by Nathan, whose photographic skills far exceed those of his father.


I managed to snap this next photo with my iPhone.
