Spent a beautiful morning out at Creve Coeur lake hoping to get a bit of fall color and some great sky to boot. Luckily I was given both together about 45 minutes after I arrived. As each minute passed, the sky would morph and change color, causing my head to race around in a frenzy, although I chose to stay still and focus on a strip of shoreline that I pass frequently on my bike rides.
Plans are in the works to build a huge shopping mall very near to this lake, threatening it's beautiful scenery with all the negative effects of commercial expansion. This is the largest natural lake in Missouri and has already been compromised once with the construction of the Page Avenue extension. I'm not taking a stance to say that my image or voice will be of much influence for change but hopefully you all can appreciate the beauty and vulnerability of such a place.
