thursday: into the woods

My camera was primed and ready for the woods.  So was I.
Now to get the babies on board....
Eventually they followed in the trail of their dad and I.

Into the woods we go.

Blissful sigh.

Beaver habitat...

including a beaver trail--a hill of mashed grass and mud for sliding down (and into the water), a lodge, a tree ready for a shout of "Tim-ber!!!!" and the pond.



I had been fretting that I had missed the Glory.  Autumn doesn't last very long in the mountains.

Not to worry.
Mama Nature doesn't believe in being disappointing, I reckon.


  1. Wonderful photos! Thanks for sharing the beauty :)

  2. Oh, I love your nature walks!

  3. I can only imagine the BIG smile on your face as you viewed your uploaded photos for the first time!

    They are really beautiful :)

  4. Thanks Tina and Phyllis!

    Kelly - mostly I'm just relieved--
    one that I have a camera, and two that it's not operationally very different than my last one! :) (I have a much better understanding of things than I had thought.)

    But having full function of my hands, head, and heart again is very, very nice.

  5. Beautiful pictures! I especially love the dirt trail leading into the hills. What state do you live in?

  6. We're in Salt Lake City, Utah.

  7. I always wondered where you were...great photos. I love the butterfly and acorn myself. You are such a talented photographer!

  8. Beautiful. Fall is so perfect, isn't it?


Thanks so much for sharing your thoughts!
