  1. Wow...sounds and looks like a perfect weekend! Your pictures, as usual, are just stunning! You really captured the beautiful essence of fall, especially in the fourth photo down. What glorious color!

    " I still get a childish kick out of tromping through dry leaves.'

    HA! OMG...me too!!! Don't you love the sound and smell of dry leaves? The BEST!

    And I cannot believe how close you got to that deer and took a picture. I once went on a 7-day retreat in the Pocono Mountains and would take long walks through the woods during the day and spotted many deer. However, when they saw me, they would run. I adore deer. Beautiful eyes and such a gentle yet, very powerful presence.

    LOVE that wine bottle!

    Thanks for sharing your weekend, girl. Enjoyed it!

    1. Thank you! I do enjoy the smell and sound and look of fall, that's for sure.

      There's no hunting in the state park so that may be why they are so fearless there.

      And I have a weaknesses for cool wine bottle labels.

  2. Oh those damn deer! They are taking over the world!

    What a beautiful river. Your photo reminds me of a lookout in Zion. I'm glad someone had nice weather over the weekend. It looks quite lovely as I suffer through our first week of snow.

    1. Or we are, and crowding them out of their habitat.

      Oh, snow! I'm sorry. We actually got a little spitting snow on Tuesday, but it's warming back up.

  4. That's quite a dish to have emerged from a few "found objects" in the kitchen! But improvised meals can sometimes be unexpectedly brilliant.

    Fabulous scenery, yet again. And I love the deer. Such a sweetie!

  7. The next to last pic: what is it? It looks like braids of rope are twined around something. The doe looks healthy, the tail-down indicates an unalarmed state usually.

    1. Those brown things? They are little catkins of some sort, from another plant. It's a close up of the moss covered log a couple of pictures up.
