A Golden Lakeside Hike

The sun was weak, recuperating after days of rain, although its rays were golden, coating everything it touched in a caramel glow as we wove our way through farmland until we reached an empty parking lot with enough spaces for all of us enthusiasts on this amazing and rare weather day.....

Midlife Mountaineers

Each footstep brings us closer to the top of the steep hill, our breath frosty as it gusts out of aching lungs, muscles demanding to stop, but we push forward....

The energy of the dogs who are eagerly leading the way as we edge up the slippery path helps to keep us going.

"Break" one of us calls out for a moments rest, and we gratefully stop to recover our breath....Oh.... Thank.....Goood....ness...someone manages to huff out...

As Autumn Ages

"As Autumn ages, it finds itself waking up each morning in a bit of a fog, with stiff joints that take until midday to limber up when the brilliant sunshine finally burns away the fog."

There's lots of Autumn color in this post, and all you have to do is click on the pictures to read it and see the full-size images.

Have you read As the River Runs? Lots of beautiful photos in that one too.

I've been creating Rural's blog posts in Adobe Spark for a while now, it's a wonderful way to share those larger images and the layout is so much easier for you to read. 

They're also fun to create!

As The River Runs

I haven't been in years.

But when one of Nature's most amazing events takes place in so nearby I couldn't miss it.

It's the dominant year at the Adams River Salmon Run in Chase, BC and what a spectacular sight it was.
