Byrd Lake in October

(This picture can be enlarged by clicking on it.  Clicking a second time will make it full-sized.)

Cumberland Mountain State Park near Crossville is one of the smaller parks in Tennessee's park system.  But it does have a wonderful restaurant and a beautiful lake.  This autumn photo of Byrd Lake is from my archives and shows just how beautiful the Plateau can be during October.

Oh, Gregore !!!
I do not like the gray, rainy, cold autumn ...
When I saw the picture your fall, fell in love with her.
It is gorgeous ...
I send you greetings from distant Polish.

A park can be beautiful no matter how big it is.

Byrd Lake, deve ser um local tranquilo,um verdadeiro oásis, em que o azul do lago contrasta com os diversos matizes do arvoredo.
