Well, the Ponca ColorFest is over for another year! It was certainly bigger this year than I remember last year being. The colors were not quite as vibrant as last year due to the drought this summer but they were so much better in the Ozarks than here in central Arkansas!
Above is the old historic church and community center in Boxley Valley. The left hand side of the building is obviously being refurbished, making what is usually one of the signature photo ops in the area less picturesque than usual.
We didn't get any pictures of the elk herd this year. I guess a full moon kept them out feeding throughout the nights and we just weren't up early enough to catch them in the fields in the valley.
