An Autumn Walk

Are you like me and the squirrels...
busy scurrying around 
getting ready for winter??

This cold weather has put me 
into high gear!

Opening pheasant weekend
is just two weeks away!
We'll have a few guests to put up,
so I've been converting the 
pickle/canning kitchen
into a hunter's retreat!

Last week on a quick 
supply run into town,
I decided to check out the "Nature Trail"

Shhhhh, don't tell Max!!

I knew the leaves were falling
fast, and if I didn't
go shoot some pictures
my chance would 
be GONE!!

It was a fun little

So quiet!

I checked under 
the old stone bridge
for any trolls!
(they must have migrated
south already.)

One squirrel, two deer

I could have easily
sat down on this bench 
and just done
nothing but listen
to the trees swaying in the wind
and watch the leaves
dancing in the breeze.....

Maybe tomorrow?

With Max!

Have an awesome Monday,

So glad you took time to check out the nature trail and to take us alone. The photos are lovely. I especially like the stone bridge and the trail through the fence.

OMGosh great pictures...love that troll bridge, might have to take my little goats there soon.
And that song, it was so fun watching the winner last season on American Idol trying to sing it through his tears wasn't it?

What a beautiful walk, the leaves turning surely paint a pretty picture !
I'm smitten by the little troll bridge, what a unique stone creation, filled full of character.
Yes, Fall has arrived, let's enjoy :)
