Fall or Winter

John suggested a ride up the canyon yesterday afternoon. Our children did not want to go so it was an impromptu date for me! The fall leaves ares till changing. And it snowed earlier in the week. This created a brilliant display of colors highlighted by the white background of the snow.

There were quite a lot of cars and people in the canyon enjoying the fabulous fall day. I think I was the only one silly enough to wear a skirt with slip on leopard print shoes. I regreted my choice of clothing as I watched the hikers taking up the side of the mountain. I love to hike! But the ground was wet from the melting snow and my shoes were going to cause blisters if I walked far. John has promised to take me back next week so we can try out the trails.

We stopped at the ski resort I attempted to learn to ski. Those hills sure look a lot smaller without the deep snow and you don't have skis strapped to your feet! We talked about private ski lessons for myself in hopes I can learn to hit the slopes with my husband.

It is a beautiful time of year!

Fall is beautiful. But all that snow already? Ghastly.
