Neshaminy Creek

Uploaded: November 24, 2011 03:15:47


A view from the campus of Bucks County Community College a few weeks ago.
The yellow autumn foliage was stunning against the backdrop of the Neshaminy Creek (more like a river) 100 feet below the cliff ahead of where I was standing (I never stand at the edge of a cliff--hafta crawl on my belly to deal with the acrophobia).
Thought this was an apt image for saying "Happy Thanksgiving!"
