From the Mull River Look-Off, I continued along Highway 252 and turned onto the Smithville Road at Glendyer Station, stopping just before I reached a mailbox with house number 132 on it. Photo #1 looks to the north along Smithville Road, with some fine autumn colours visible on both sides of the road. Glendyer Brook flows through the field at the right of the photo and under the wooden bridge in the foreground; it will empty into the Mabou River on the south side of Highway 252 a short distance away. The grasses alongside the road are brown at the top, though with green showing, likely testifying to a frost with some protection from the river and brook.
Photo #2 is a close-up view of the rainbow of colours on the west side of the Smithville Road, taken at the same spot as photo #1. In this mixed forest, reds are present, but are not predominant; not yet at their peak, with some greens still showing, but not far from it, this forest chorale results from the collaboration of many trees, each with its own distinct voice, under the direction of a brilliant sun that brings out the best in each.
I continued along the Smithville Road until I reached the stretch that offers the first of several glorious views of Cape Mabou, photos of which will follow. The maples seen in photo #3 are along a boundary line between two fields. The red tree in the centre, of course, is what first took my eye, but the lovely variegated trees still very much changing from greens to reds are also very interesting. The mountain at the far right is Cape Mabou in the distance.
