Merom Bluff revisited....

Remember I wrote about going to Merom Bluff during the summer HERE? That time we were cloud chasing...
Yesterday it was just some place to go to that was farther south, and I thought there might be more fall color left there. And there was some...not a whole lot more but it was still worth the trip.
You can tell by looking in the distance as well as under these tress that most leaves are down. I do have more color from here to show you tomorrow. But first I thought I would show you the reason it is called Merom Bluff.
You can see the Wabash River way down below....and the land across it is Illinois.
And this is the road that leads down to the river. I would not want to lose my brakes on the way down, nor have to come up it when it was icy.
No matter, I still think it really beautiful.
These photos are all supposed to enlarge, so I hope you click on them to get the full effect.
I thought I would show you some of the rock formations or cliffs or whatever you want to call them.
And when you get to the bottom, there is a place to launch your boat into the Wabash River. This is looking upstream. I wonder just how far it would be to Terre Haute if going up the river instead of driving?

Gorgeous trip! They are all wonderful - the trees and their shadows, the leaves on the river, and rocks that invite peeking into those recesses!

What a beautiful place! I wonder if fall lasted longer if we'd get tired of it.

This bluff is a beautiful place to view from. I also liked the steep road down. Clicking on the pictures for a larger view certainly enhances the viewing. Very nice photography.

What a spectacular tour! I live in the mountains and I'm not used to seeing for miles and miles; it's lovely.

Rose, these pictures are beautiful and a sense of peace is with me as I look at them. Thank you for sharing the beauty! And yes enlarging the pictures is the next best thing to being there!

Lovely Rose!
I sure love the perspective on the last one. I almost feel like I'm swimming in the water looking down (up) stream.
