Saturday, the PSNWA sponsered a photo trip to Boxley Valley and Lost Valley on the Buffalo River to shoot Elk. The Elk were there but disappeared as the sun came up and the fog burned off. It turned out to be a beautiful day and did finally warmed up some. Some people got tired of waiting for the light but it was well worth waiting for. The fall colors were spectacular. We met at the Ponca Elk Center for a tour and lunch, then went to Lost Valley State Park for a hike up the trail. Long day but great for shooting.

This guy was determined to get his shot at Eden Falls. I thought for sure he was going to fall in. He was one of hundreds of people that we encountered that were enjoying the weather and colors.
