3 weeks of Warm Sunny Autumn, now Snow....

 (female nuthatch on edible Chicken of the Woods fungi)

 Autumn began with beautiful sunny days

autumn colors turned the world magical

Rains arrived

after the storm, the mountains would breathe and make clouds

Went on a mushroom foray,

a great way to learn (with a teacher)

and found my first Chanterelles! Yum

and others......

Took a high mountain road looking for fungi

in the rain that turned to snow. 

At times I wondered if my van would disappear into the flooded road.

We have lovely neighbor hood fox

cloaked in autumn colors.

Trees wore their magical colors:

pink, red, amber, peach and golds.

Over a couple of months

I gathered a little flock of birds for daily company

Then the snow arrived

3 snowfalls so far




Autumn Glory

 Autumn is simply showing off this year!

These photos were taken last week in Glacier National Park

it has been a long time since I have seen it like this, golden and glowing

Blue skies, no smoke

(though we did have smoke from other states fires recently)

drove to the top of Logan Pass

where the views change ones heart and breath

the colors sometimes come and go quite swiftly, 

this year though they are moving right along, yet also lingering 

I hope you are enjoying your autumn, or spring depending on where you are in the world.

Nature does have the ability to balance the whackiness of humans....

at least for me......

I hope for you too.
