Dinner was over and Joe suggested taking a drive to see the beginning of the fall colors in our town. As we went down the road leading to our house...this is what we found. This is the road that we take into town. The railroad tracks lead to the Byron Nuclear Power Plant. It is seldom used...only when the need to move something by rail a couple of times a year. Each year they go back and forth on the tracks and spray an herbicide to kill the weeds along the tracks. I wish that they didn't do this....and I wonder what they use. Last year the sprayer went a little haywire in this spot and they not only killed the weeds in the foreground, but they sprayed it up into the trees, spoiling their fall show.
