Sassafras fall color

The sassafras trees are some of the first trees to show fall colors. Before the rest of the trees turn color you can spot groves of sassafras trees glowing red like campfire embers. The sumacs are red too by now. These sassafras trees (Sassafras albidum) are reaching out over the trail between Lindberg Road and Cherry Lane in West Lafayette. Picture taken September 28, 2009.
