Ed, I and Coda went off road a little this morning, exploring parts of the fire road that don't have a road. Each step makes a giant crunching sound. It was beautiful! Ed was wearing the "don't shoot me with your crossbow" vest! Happily, it seemed to be effective!
There are some really tall trees in the forest! And, in the fall that makes a lot of leaves! We walked for five miles, which has started to seem like the right length for any walk now. The weather was crisp, but sunny, and the sun shining off the reservoir was beautiful. This is truly the happiest time of year!
