Pumpkin Patch

Every year a local family opens up their beautiful property to the the children in our area for a “pumpkin patch” complete with rides, old fashioned games, animals and really great food. There is every variety of pumpkin, squash, and gourd that one could possibly think of for sale plus other fall fruits. The kids enjoy the fun and the parents enjoy beautiful surroundings. A true pleasure to visit.

Pohono Bridge in the Fall

I made a short tip to Yosemite this past week and was surprised to find that most of the large leaf maples were already past their prime and the oaks were quickly approaching their prime and the dogwoods were a mixed bag with some already reaching their peak colors and others still green. This is much earlier than normal for me. Mother Nature is always unpredictable and full of surprises, but always provides us with her own unique beauty on her own time schedule. Enjoy your day !


Periodically our group is challenged to present a certain type of format and this week was people pictures and when I was informed of this, this particular shot came immediately to mind. It was taken at a flea market a few years ago, and this vendor happened to glance up at me while I was snapping her picture. I loved her response. Enjoy your day!!!


My absolute favorite time of the year is fast approaching. I truly love the fall colors and I visit my favorite places in the eastern sierra high country where I consider it heaven. And that’s just the beginning! I continue to follow the fall colors as they travel through the different elevations. It keeps me very busy. Enjoy your weekend.
