Mountain morning


The view from my parents' house in the mountains never, ever gets old. Its beauty is especially, well, beautiful in the fall.


This is what I wore to stay warm, stay comfortable and do a little lovely mountain walking.


My sailboat scarf is a new favorite.


We took a walk around an island surrounded by the New River. My shoes got soggy from the grass. It smelled like fallen leaves. It sounded like falling leaves. It was just absolutely lovely. 


This was my favorite tree from the walk. It looks like a fir tree, but it's not evergreen, it's super orange! Does anyone know what it is? I love it!
