Fridays Are Golden

The leaf peepers have gone and we have the mountains to ourselves for a while.  The dogs love Autumn, the brisk mornings and sunny days.  They especially love running through the fallen leaves.  There are several picnic areas that are deserted now and great places for the Golden Girls to run off lead.

Never far apart, they sniff and run.  Sniff and run.

No destination.  Just milling about.

We make them sit and rest after having a drink.
Look at those smiles!

Life is definitely better in the mountains.

And here we are in November already.  The colors are mostly gone with some red remaining.  High winds are clearing the trees of the remaining leaves and the streets are covered with them.

Sir Walter Scott said of November:
"November sky is chill and clear,
November's leaf is red and sear."

In case you have no other reason to panic:  only 53 days remain in 2013.

Nice to see the Golden Girls out and about on a beautiful fall day. Such a lovely time of the year.

Bet those girls are feeling downright frisky in the cooler weather and loving every minute of it!

So glad you have your mountains back! I'm like the golden girls; I love cool mornings and sunny afternoons. Enjoy!

That is a happy pair of girls!!!! You must adore this time of year, not too hot and not too cold - just right for playing with the golden girls!

As the leaves fall, we begin to see the bones of the landscape and that's always nice too.

All animals (cept some humans) seem to get frisky in the cooler weather. Good to see the girls enjoying.

I could have lived very happily without that 53 day reminder !!
Love the pictures.

I enjoy this time of year in the mountains. When the leaves fall my woods open up and I see more wildlife - deer, wild turkeys, pileated woodpeckers, and more. In winter the deer stop there and feed on acorns under the snow.

Running off lead in a deserted park is the only way to go....:)
