Walking through New Orleans, it is still easy to see the signs of the devastation and damage that still lingers from Katrina. I can’t say if this broken window pane is even related to the hurricane or not. But I thought this picture summed up a bit of the way I felt about this city when I visited.
In the season of autumn, many people have their heads turned up to the beautiful show that the trees can put on for you in this season. At 10,000 feet in early October, however, most of the leaves had dropped from the trees. What you see here are the many plants along the forest floor putting on their own show as they burst into an array of color themselves.
