A Little Drive….

Sunday we took a little drive to pick up some lambs.  It was a perfect fall day!  The colors were vivid and bright. (Which made me want to stop at every corner and take pictures! We were on mission though with time restraints, so we just drove!)  On the way home though, the sun was starting to set on the lake and my husband made several stops so I could snap some pictures.  Love that guy!  One of the stops held an extra special bonus!  I jumped out of the pickup and walked down a little trail to get to the shore and I could hear water running so I went a bit further up the shore to find this beautiful sight!  The end of a little stream pouring into Flathead lake and some wonderful fall colors…

While hiking…

We ran into this guy…

I mean, we really about ran into him.  The trail went right beside him and it was very steep and bushy, no way to go up higher to get around him.  Moose scare me a bit more than bears.  Thankfully, it was  not a mama with a calf.  We all scurried quickly and quietly past this guy (9 kids along with my husband, my folks and myself) .  The little kids kept on going up the trail while a few of us stayed behind and definitely kept our distance from him and took a couple of quick shots…

Not a very good picture above but I love the duck swimming next to him!
