One of the blessings on Thanksgiving day this year was the time to do a few fun things........instead of being enslaved in the kitchen.
We took the time to take some pre-dinner exercise.....and the meadow behind our house was the destination. Just a few pictures........this meadow is beautiful year-round.
|This is the view behind our property.......our roof is barely visible on the right. The neighbor is the building on the left.|
|Same view as above, but a close-up of The Mountain, newly decorated with snow|
|Also, taken from behind our property.......but more to the right. That is our three-story fort.|
|Three daughters, one friend and three aquaphile golden retrievers. Oh, and one little boy in shorts on a bike. |
Walking along the railroad tracks.
|Walking throught the woods.|
|........to the creek, Wagon Wheel Creek.|
|The aquaphiles. They have no care that it is glove, hat and coat season.|
|The meadow is beyond......|
|I love how the water reflections look like an oil painting.|
|Rose hips and juniper.|
|The meadow. Mount Eddy in the background.|
|The lone tree in its winter array.|
|Heck. Who needs a trail?|
|The dead grass is almost tall enough to hide three large dogs. They love this walk.|
|My three girls.....and the view. Black Butte to the left......The Mountain straight behind. My home is somewhere on the other side of those woods.....less than half a mile away. This is "in" my backyard.......blessed.|
If you ever come to visit, I promise to take you to the meadow.
The door is always open......just ask my previous visitors.
