Sometimes you take a nice little adventure on a dirt road, and then...come home and run over a roofing nail in your driveway.
Obstacles in the path! (Courtesy of a pretty good storm a couple of weeks ago.) Sometimes you go over, sometimes you go under, sometimes you go around, or - as we did on this particular day - you just head back the way you came, happy with your walk. :)
Up in the mountains, in the shade, in September. Elder Child absolutely loves snow, so it was a nice promise of cooler weather and cozy snowstorms to come!
I absolutely love being in nature, outside, in the mountains. And yet, sometimes storms blow through that have the power to do things like...uproot entire trees, and that kind of power is more than a little bit frightening!
We actually have seen quite a few different types of mushrooms and fungus on our walks over this past year, but the shelf fungus remains a favorite. This was on the tree that had fallen across the trail.
A pretty capture from the first week I had my new camera! I had fun playing with shutter speed settings, this ended up being my favorite.
