Sunday Drive

 It was an overcast day with a chance of rain, but with the mild temps and a finished yard project behind us, we decided to take a little Sunday drive round the mountain. We took a few roads that well, really lead nowhere, because if you keep going in a straight line, you'll drive off a cliff! So round and round we went until we found these beauties!
 Such lovely girls...
 ...and their very stern looking fellow.
 We loved the house across the road from their pasture and can only imagine the view from the back! 
 The road finally led us down off our mountain, a road we've traveled before...just not this direction.
 At the bottom turn, heading back up, were these three country bumpkins giving us the eye.
 We took a little round about way home. One I've ridden the motorcycle on a few times. See that ridge? The road that leads us home is up there!
 We go down...
 ...and round...
 ...and up and round.
 And down and round again.
 And down and round and up....
 ...and up and up and up!
 If you take a look back...'re sure to get a little dizzy!!!

 The season is moving a little faster than I could have imagined!
Not 3 days ago my Japanese Maple was a dull maroon. Yesterday in the sun, I noticed it had changed to a spectacular red!

 As we sat outside, enjoying the warmth and sunshine of a fine fall afternoon, I had a little visitor. Now I know some of you (Julie) aren't interested in my little fuzzy friends....
 ...but how can I not show this crazy little Babyface!
This little Jumping Spider is just one of the many that, as far as arachnids go, has stole my heart!
