Home, Sweet Home

Watching the sunset Saturday night from our front porch.

We had a great week of vacation and really enjoyed the beach, but we are all happy to back at home in our mountains.  The temperatures are dropping below freezing at night and the colors on the trees are really starting to come out.  We are looking forward to hiking a couple of mountain trails today.

    I am sure the herd will enjoy being back to their trails & that they are enjoying the much cooler weather!! It is 62 here at 9am…which is very refreshing. Happy Hiking!
