Fall’s First Breath

Falls’s first breath on the Mead Wildlife Area, Wood County, Wisconsin.

Ever notice how a cold morning in the fall seems so much colder than the same temperature during the spring?  Part of the reason is that there is much more moisture in the air during early fall. If you are lucky enough to be outside during the beginning of a new fall day when the temperature has dropped below freezing for the first time during the season, you will notice frost covering the landscape. The first breaths of the morning seems to coat everything in front of  you.

This image was attained near Smokey Hill Road in The George W. Mead Wildlife Area.  “The Mead” consists of approximately 30,000 acres, bordering both sides of the Little Eau Pleine River in northern Wood and Portage Counties and southern Marathon County.  It is managed by the DNR as a mixture of habitats for plants, animals and birds, especially those associated with water. Parts of the wildlife area are open for hunting and fishing during regular seasons.
