Colors of the Oak Openings on an October Afternoon
The Oak Openings of Northwest Ohio is a unique habitat formed from sandy glacial deposits on the edge of what was the precursor of Lake Erie tens of thousands of years ago. As the name suggests, the sandy soil is perfect for many large oak trees as well as scrub bushes and unusual plant species. On this warm and sunny October afternoon, I mounted my bicycle and road through the openings, camera in hand.
