Sunset and Shadows

As we are approaching the shortest day of the year, our walks are in the sunset and shadows even though we walked shortly after 4.

Our walk is glowing in the sunset. (Don't worry - Kiska is just out of frame, but she is with it).

You might notice that we are walking in the middle of Cataloochee Ranch. Our big dog friends – that special breed known as horses – have left the mountain top for their winter home. We love our big dog friends, but we also love being able to walk through the ranch.

We don't see the big dogs anywhere.

As we walked back from the horse barn (er, big dog barn), we noticed that we had picked up some friends for the walk home.

Shadow dogs and shadow humans - the joys of sunset and shadows.

As we dropped back down behind the ridge toward our house, our shadow friends went away (and, amazingly, so did the sunshine). But we did enjoy our walk.

Woo, that was fun! And, yes, I am walking backwards.
