Sweet September Sunsets

My girls on a ‘walkabout’ in the late setting sun.

The light was awesome and all of these pictures are un-retouched.

I just love the old barbed wire hanging on the old wood fence poles…..all around my property.  So nostalgic.

Almost looks like a moon dog there but it’s just glare on the camera.

They say you shouldn’t take a shot directly into the sun but I kinda’ like the effects.

This is one of the last Hollyhocks blooming.

Savor the last of the September sunsets, this month is almost gone….can you believe it?

Camping Season…

…is slowing winding down here in Washington.  The nights are very cool and the days are just perfect…in the mid 70’s, with some clouds.

The sunsets are always lovely but super short.  I really hate that it is getting dark for early.

But not to worry, I am heading out to White Bird, ID this next week to enjoy the beautiful weather on the Salmon River, where it will be a bit warmer.  I plan to winter my trailer down there in November, so I can enjoy the little ‘banana belt’ down there, during our dark and dreary days up here in Eastern Washington.

Happy Trails

I spent three days down at Riverside State Park last week.  As it turned out two others were not able to make it. It was the first time I did entire trip by myself.

But I wasn’t alone.

I actually had company.

I invited my grandson, Maxwell, to join me for the day.  His brother, Grayson is now in Kindergarten and I thought Maxwell was probably missing him.

Maxwell, is just so serious.  We walked over 10,000 steps that long day and had a wonderful time together.

This is the only picture that even resembles a smile….he is a tough subject!  Ha!

I had a wonderful time, at one of my most favorite state parks.

Just seven trailers this year and eight gals who did some junkin’ over the weekend.  By the way, the orange and white trailer is the same as mine just a year newer.
