Falling For Fall

Truth be known, I 'fell for fall' a long, long time ago. It has always been one of my very favorite times of year.

Cool mornings and evenings, comfortable days, fantastic scenery and the excitement of watching this year's dog team start to come together!!

All good!!!

After some 'trail issues' last season, yesterday for the first time in close to a year we headed down into the Tawatinaw Valley to cross the 'river' (it's running REALLY low this year) and over to our campground on the other side.

This is one of my very favorite runs with the dogs and offers lots of great scenery!!

The campground is looking great. Our neighbour and former kennel help (when he was something like 16 - now he is married and a father!), Colin had asked if he could take some of the dead, fallen trees out of the area. Not only did he take out some trees that needed to go, but he left a nice stack of firewood at our little campsite!!
Very nice!! It is my plan to put that wood to use sometime next week when we take the team on their first camping trip of the season.

I'm sure the team was rolling their eyes at me when I kept stopping to take pictures - but who could resist??

The County mowed the ditches over the weekend. I'm sure they wait till they see we have struggled to put our dog trail in through the tall grass and then decide it is time to mow!!!

It's raining and warm this morning, but in a day or so we will be back on the trails enjoying the season again!!!

Happy Days!!
