I LOVE FALL . . .

I don't know about you, but I am so ready for fall!  It has always been my favorite time of year, maybe because I was born in November - so it's just in my blood!

We went camping a week or so ago, and the colors were just gorgeous!  The nights were cool, actually cold, and the days were mild and warm.  We had a good time - but I guess, it's time to think about winterizing now.   Here are a few highlights from our trip.

We didn't see a lot of wildlife - but we did see this big moose!  He was standing right in the middle of a herd of cattle.

Bob and I are sometimes a little too adventurous!  We went for a ride, and came to this creek - it was almost dry, but didn't look good at all!  Bob decided he was going to try to cross it . . . I got out of the truck, I'm not as brave as him!  The picture doesn't look nearly as bad as it really was, it was scary!

Yikes!

Notice the tire . . . that isn't touching the ground!!  

After checking it out - we just decided to back up and not cross . . . :0)  

This is the innocent looking creek that scared me to death!

Every view was seriously breathtaking!

Red everywhere!

These Mahogany's were just gorgeous !

This is the view from our camp site!

What a fun  trip - I'll share more later!!  Hope we get another one in before the snow flies! 


Hugs,

  1. Yikes! Your hubby is a daredevil. LOL! Smart gal to bail, that's all I can say.

    That moose is huge. Probably thought he was hanging with his kin.☺

    Gorgeous photos of autumn...all the red is just amazing.

  2. Wow Barb, you got some great shots! That view is just spectacular. I'm not a daring person either, I would have jumped off that truck too - thank God for 4 wheel drive though!

    It's nice to enjoy fall through your pictures. Living in South Florida means we won't see fall weather till possibly November. It's very rainy here right now, thanks to the cooler weather from up north colliding with the tropical warmth of the Atlantic and Caribbean. It's been excessively humid too. That's one thing I could do without!

    Enjoy the beautiful weather. Looking forward to more pics!

  5. Hi Barb! I would have hopped out of the truck, too! Men aren't afraid of anything, are they? Wish I were so brave. Love the red trees...the scenery there is beautiful! And the rack on the moose...wow! Sounds like a fun camping trip. Take care and have a good week!

  7. Sooo pretty! It was changing in Oregon also. I didn't get many pictures of it because of all the camera problems. Maybe one or two. I love trips like you took. But only with somebody who knows the way back very well.

  9. The picture of the moose is amazing! Can't believe it was with a bunch of cows. So glad you didn't cross that creek. I remember going with my dad in the jeep and he was always looking for the unlikely places to drive or cross. He loved using his winch to get us over, around or whatever was blocking his path.
    It is nice to have fall coming on. Today, it is a little chilly here, but it'll warm up again,I'm sure. Thanks for sharing your beautiful autumn pictures.
