Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

I just want to say Thank You to everyone for the nice comments as well as the Favorites and Likes. This is a shot that I knew was special as soon as I saw it on the camera LCD and I'm glad I could share it with everyone. It was an incredibly beautiful fall day and I feel honored to have just been there to witness it.

Thank you all so much!
