Photographer's Note

The hill peaking above the fog is Matney Mountain located on the edge of the Leatherwoods in the Ozarks. The white river flows by the mountain and is often the source of dense early morning fog. This particular morning was particularly beautiful, at least to my wife and I so I grabed the camera to capture the moment. This was the best of several pictures. Matney is three miles away as the crow flies in my southern view.

I enjoy mountain biking. The ride to the top of Matney is not my normal ride, but I try to make it at least once a year either when the leaves have fallen off the trees, or before the pawpaws are harvested by the racoons. The fruit of the pawpaw tree is also known as an "Arkansas Banana". It takes me twenty minutes to get to the Sheid Bridge from my home. From the bridge it takes another forty-five minutes to get to the top of the mountain. From the top of the mountain back to the bridge is only ten minutes.
