We are enjoying the vibrant colors of fall this year! For some reason it seems to be especially spectacular…
Aspen leaves are my absolute favorite!

Love this smiling crew! We all had such a blast on our little adventure.
Yesterday’s foggy, misty morning left it feeling like the seasons might be starting to change!
The little white fruits of the Snowberry bush is mildly toxic, especially to children and pets. Sorry no taste-testing these guys!
The day was nearly over when I was taking these pictures and made the berries almost seem luminescent.
Their hollow stems used to be used as whistles, but the stems are mildly toxic as well.
These were growing under some Cottonwoods and the leaf litter was quite pretty too…
The cold, crisp mountain air combined with the sweet smell of autumn leaves is one of my favorites. I think I could stand there for several hours and just inhale deeply…
At age 19, Sawyer is all about hunting. Very serious about hunting! He has been hunting with my father 3-4 times per week since hunting season started. With the weather perfect weather the perfect weather coming up on Friday and all the sheep sorting and farm chores caught up (mostly), we decided to go hunting. This was my first outing for the year, so I was more than excited to head up to the ranch for a little peace and quite and just soaking in all the natural beauty around us.
Normally, Sawyer, my husband and I are up here at least every weekend, cutting wood/hunting. This year though my father purchased a logging truck full of logs and had it delivered to our place, so going and getting wood has been knocked down a notch on the priority list and we haven’t been hunting this year, yet. That and my husbands new job has had him gone quite a bit too.
We did see lots of does and one little spike a gazillion yards away. So we were unsuccessful in our hunt but had a wonderful day together. Our first son/mother hunt. Lots of laughs and talking ~ maybe that’s why we didn’t see much! 😉
