Fall colors

We do get fall colors in New Mexico. The cottonwoods all along the valley turn bright gold, as do the aspen in the mountains. Red leaves are a little harder to find. Fortunately, the Fourth of July Canyon in the Manzano mountains was spared the forest fires this summer. On Saturday, Hubbers, Kristal and three dogs went for a hike to enjoy the chilly, wet, red forest.

Amazing... I always thought that black dogs (like Wiley) never show up well in photos. But now we have a dog that is nearly perfectly camouflaged in the forest.


  1. YAY for Fall!! I love the photos:)

  2. How pretty! I miss the boat-loads of red and orange leaves the Midwest has. What are you knitting these days? I've been having a hard time making the Tue. nights. Heather
