Not Quite Fall in Wauwatosa

Normally at this time in October, we residents of Southeastern Wisconsin, are enjoying the palette of golds, reds and yellows that fall presents.  But this year, autumn is a little shy, and we still have many areas, including my city of Wauwatosa, mostly in the green.  However, I've been stuck at home for the last three days with a head (and now) chest cold, and was desperate to get out today and take some photos now that I'm feeling better.  So, I went to one of our local parks, Hoyt Park, home of the city pool, to try and get some shots of any fall color I could find.

The most popular place to take photos in Hoyt Park is its bridge across the Menomonee River.  In fact, while I was trying to get a good photo of the bridge (which was difficult so late in the day), I witnessed a wedding party, complete with Pomeranians, and two high school seniors getting their photos taken on the bridge.

There was at least some color to break up the green trees on the long walking path that borders the Menomonee River Parkway.

I had to try to get one last good photo of Hoyt Park's bridge before I left.  But, I think I'll try to go back early in the day next weekend for a better photo.  Hopefully, there will be more colors on the trees!


  1. We were saying the same thing around here a couple weeks ago around the same time. Then the leaves changed extremely quickly and fell. I feel like I blinked and missed it! Thanks for stopping by my blog. All of your photos are great. :) Have a great weekend.

    1. Thanks for your comment! I have a feeling it won't be too long before our trees are bare. You have a great weekend as well!
