An Early Morning Excursion


Early this morning we left our house,and were greeted with an amazing sunrise. Like often the case, it is impossible to capture nature's real beauty.




With my brother and sister-in-law we paid a visit to see some friends on a farm. The hour and a half drive was so enjoyable, through the mountains, by the streams, and to the farm to see their friends. This little kitten was one of the first to greet us.



We hiked some trails...



We visited some neighbors and friends...


We talked to the cows...




We enjoyed seeing the last of the Summer's beautiful flowers...



We paused by the mountain streams...



We stood at the top of the rolling hill and were captivated by the scenery...





We stood still as we watched the deer on the field right beside us...


Only an hour and a half away from home, but a totally different lifestyle then we are used to. We were all thankful for the refreshing break in the daily routine of life.
