|They said that the leaves peaked last week.|
|They were still so glorious.|
|All of it just so lovely. So peaceful.|
|Eliza and I went for a couple of walks.|
|She filled her sketchbook with bits of autumnal specimens to press. To remember this special time. So typical of her.|
|You feel like you are on the top of the world, standing on the balcony of that cabin. Almost like you are looking down from heaven. Especially with all this crimson and gold.|
It can take your breath away.
|And of course, there was good food to be had. There always is.|
|The nature lovers did some birding.|
They brought Papa's binoculars out.
Even found a couple of owl pellets
|that my sister pricked apart with her bare hands. |
(To our amazement, but not so much.)
Eager and curious to find out what the owl ate before.
We left, winding our way down the mountain,
hearts full at the beauty of it all.
Memories made, bonds strengthened.
Cherishing this time spent in togetherness.
Can't wait 'til Thanksgiving when we get to do it all over again.
