A Sunday Drive

We've been itching to take a drive to the mountains for the last month or so.  We wanted to see the colors and watch the elk.  We wanted to spend a day exploring. But, up until now our weekends had not allowed for such an excursion... 

Our weekend was approaching and we knew we needed to do a lot of work in the yard but we also knew that the kids soccer was canceled and there would be no Church.  So, we all worked hard on Saturday...

And Sunday morning found us gathering jackets and the camera, 
jumping in the car and  making the drive up to the mountains.  The peak of golds had already quietly passed but still we sat and watched a large heard of elk, played with chipmunks and blue jays, and saw peaks of gold and lingered in the breeze. 

 It was a simply beautiful day.


  1. Sorry you missed the colors but sounds like you had a great time anyway. Love the pics.

  2. Wow, that last photo was breathtaking. I miss living where you can see fall colors.
