Yesterday was just lovely! Blue skies, new snow, sparkles everywhere. New snow makes the world seem fresh again.

Most years we head out in the forest with friends to find our Christmas trees but this year, it was just us. The road was covered in snow and we did not drive nearly as far into the forest as we have in the past. No point in trying to get stuck. Some people think that’s fun but not us! It did not take us long to find a nice Douglas fir that will grace our home for the holiday season. Of course, it was on the steepest hillside. The dogs and I trundled through the snow while Ken tied the tree to the top of the truck.

Yesterday was a glorious fall day. If you were not outside, I am sorry about that.

October went from fall to winter and back to fall. The girls and I got out on various walks, in various weather. It was all good.

We started with a walk up at the pass so the girls could play in the snow. Of course, Sky found a tennis ball. A dirty, partially rotten tennis ball. She was so proud. Another day we went to Big Valley right after a rain squall. The colors were magnified by the moisture. Shortly after that we went back to Big Valley after the first real snowfall in the valley. And salmon were spawning in the river this month. Circle of life.

Our last stop was in the Bitterroot Valley to visit some good friends. We enjoyed another really nice hike in the mountains and playing with their new puppy. Don’t ask me why I don’t have photos of the pup. I don’t know. That’s just not like me. You can see Mary’s photos from the hike here. It was hard to say goodbye and end the trip but it’s always good to be home.
