Today's picture features a "walk" down a beautiful wooded lane on a foggy October morning. Misty scenes abound in many places around the globe during the fall season, but photographer Juanita Ruffner has captured this one in spectacular fashion. Here is her story behind the image:
    "My hubby and I made our way to Beaver Creek State Park. We both
    enjoy coming here a lot. He's been very supportive of me and my
    photography, and I appreciate it very much.

    The road that leads into it is just as scenic and beautiful as the park
    itself. I was drooling and could hardly contain myself when I saw and
    felt like I hit the 'jackpot'. Fog everywhere and the sun filtering
    through - I was in heaven!"
        --Juanita Ruffner
