Crazy Beautiful


Have I told you? I live in a crazy beautiful place. There aren't enough hours in the day for me to see all the beauty that surrounds me. Sometimes I get stuck before ever leaving my own property. This is the bottom of my driveway. See what I mean? 

And this is the view from about a block down the road.

I went walking with my friend, Erin, today. This is what we saw on our walk. We didn't go very far...and we were only 10 minutes from the house. Am I spoiled? Yes!





Moose tracks...NO, not an ice cream flavor!

A really gnarly old tree....



The moon...in the middle of the day... 




Later in the day, I drove to Huntsville, about 20 minutes away on the other side of the valley. Was it any less pretty there? No, just different! Am I spoiled? Yes!







And on the way home...as the sun was setting...





An afterthought: my friend, Sue, suggested that I link this to Jenny Matlock's Alphabe-Thursday page, with its fall colors theme this week....so, linking I am. I normally follow Miss Jenny's Saturday Centus, but why not on Thursday, too, occasionally? Right? Oh, and if you're not a frequent visitor and want to see some more fall colors from my corner of the planet...be sure to look here...or here...or just feel free to snoop around the past couple weeks of postings. Have fun!

You do live in an amazingly beautiful spot. It's sensational to look at these photos. I can't imagine seeing it every day in person.

The one drawback? All that snow that lasts so long. But I guess there has to be a price to pay. And those photos are beautiful, too, in their own way...

You should hook up with Jenny's Alphabe-Thursday today. The theme is fall colors, and you have plenty of them here.

You are spoiled! Truly these colours are out of this world. Our fall lasts for such a short time, we really cherish it. Its my dream to live somewhere I can just walk out our door to go on a hike.

Yes, you're spoiled - in the very best way! I live in a beautiful part of the world too, and never tire of walking, taking it in, breathing it in.
I've seen your blogger name in comments, and was glad of the opportunity to visit your blog.

Anita! Oh you are right...what a glorious part of the country you live in.

This was like a walk through a fairy tale to me...the vistas, the views, the breeze scented with autumn ennui.

Thank you for linking this up.

It was absolutly delicious!
