Thanks, friends! It was a stab in the dark since none of the leaves showing in the photo had side lobes; it was the description as much as the picture that clued me in.

If anyone would know it would be Chris; she is *excellent* at identifying plants :)

On second thought, I do believe you are correct! I did a bit more checking and while I was fooled initially, it appears you hit it right on the head! Thanks!

Thanks but I don't think so.... I come across many Sassafras trees in my travels/hiking but this wasn't one. Thanks again though...

Probably sassafras, which is a small understory tree with autumn colors like this. Leaves may be simple, or have a lobe to one side like a mitten, or lobes on both sides, all on the same tree. The leaves and twigs will be aromatic and the roots will smell like root beer.
