The Yellow Brick Road

Well, it wasn't actually a brick  road but it was definitely yellow.  We were hiking a path along the Upper Iowa River in Lake Louise State Park. It was late August and there was yellow all along the trail. It was mostly different types of   sunflowers with other varieties of prairie plants tossed in for good measure.....



Follow, follow, follow, follow,

 Follow the Yellow Brick Road.

 Follow the Yellow Brick, Follow the Yellow Brick,

 Follow the Yellow Brick Road.
 
We're off to see the Wizard, The Wonderful Wizard of Oz.

 You'll find he is a whiz of a Wiz! If ever a Wiz! there was.

 If ever oh ever a Wiz! there was The Wizard of Oz is one because,

 Because, because, because, because, because.

 Because of the wonderful things he does.

 We're off to see the Wizard. The Wonderful Wizard of Oz

  2. You sure had a beautiful path to follow - did you ever find the Wizard?? Or perhaps he was self-evident along such a lovely walk!

  11. Fascinating to see the wildflowers change over the seasons. As I left Kentucky there were masses of the wild sunflowers. My hope is that in my new area of Vancouver, Washington I will find them again.Good post -- barbara
