Autumn in the Ozarks

It’s that wonderful time of year when the air becomes crisp, the sky has a different hue of blue and the leaves change into the most beautiful colors. We were a little worried about the Ozark color because of the dry summer season but low and behold mother nature still gave us a work of art.
