Autumn in the Ozarks

Even though the year 2020 has had many new challenges, one thing has remained the same.

Autumn in the Ozarks is beautiful. Watch Video Here

As golden leaves make their way to the ground like falling treasure, the nip in the air shows us what is to come in the not-too-distant future.

Some folks look forward to Winter. I have never been one of them.

Of course I make the best of it.  Hot drinks, warm memories and more than my share of looking at a screen depicting things that most people dream of.

For now though, the air is clean and fresh, and not too cold.  The females of our species seem to enjoy wearing long sleeved shirts, warm sweaters and talking about pumpkin spice this and pumpkin spice that.
 
I must confess I am not a pumpkin spice aficionado, nor do I partake in this somewhat annoying ritual.  I do enjoy the scent though, and it's good to see others so happy.
 
 
Recently, I took a relaxing Sunday drive to take in the majestic sights of Autumn decorating the Ozark countryside around Branson, MO.
 
See Drive Here

I drove in one big, gigantic (relatively speaking) circle.  I passed through (the edge of) Branson, Hollister, Forsyth and several other small towns and villages.  
 
My drive took me down the scenic Ozark Mountain Highroad and even past Shepherd of the Hills.
 

It was a lovely day, although the skies were as grey as could be.  I still had a good time.

Long drives are a good time to pray and thank God for the many blessings He has given.  It's also a time to reflect on life and let creative thoughts flow.  I particularly enjoy doing this with the  great Henry Mancini's orchestrations as my soundtrack.  

In preparation of the video, I was unfortunately (for legal reasons) forced to select music from a royalty free catalogue.  I did the best I could.  I hope you enjoy the drive just the same.   

I've told you a bit about my day. 
Now, I have a few questions for you.

(1.)  Do you enjoy the flavor of pumpkin spice?

(2.)  What is your favorite season for taking a long drive?

(3.)  Have you ever visited The Ozarks and/or Branson, MO?

Thank you for reading,
Danny
