Scenes from the Run - the peak of fall foliage in the South

Today I went out for a 15 mile run.  The run was extended because I kept stopping to take pictures along the way.  It is the height of the fall foliage in South MS and most likely by next week the leaves will be past their prime.  So I decided to take advantage of the beauty all around. 
My favorite of the day!
The Run - nice run on rolling hills today.  (9:38 avg pace stopping Garmin for pics).  Felt great with all the breaks to take pictures.  Also, the weather cooled making it a nice breezy comfy run.

Every fall this tree puts on a show for me to enjoy each time I run this route.

Beautiful! Is the tree in the last pic a maple or an oak? I like to identify trees and plants, so I had to ask.:) Glad that you have such nice scenery to enjoy during your runs. Thanks for sharing!

LMC - not sure about the tree, but the leaves in the first pic are from that same tree, if that helps.
