Kelly Point Park, Smith & Bybee Lakes and Oaks Bottom Wildlife Refuge

The sky reminded me of these ripples. I guess that’s why they call it a jet ‘stream’.

Smith and Bybee Lakes is just down the road to the east of Kelly Point Park – about 5 minutes. By means of a water control device, Metro takes pains to mimic nature’s definition of seasonal wetlands. The acreage here has not yet filled up with winter rain and deer take advantage of the lush grasses and plants that spring forth from the rich sediments exposed to the sky.

The trees here seem to lag behind their higher altitude brethren when it comes to changing color.
