Happy Halloween Sunset

Today's weather is what I would consider typical for the end of October; cloudy, a little misty, and slightly surprising.  I wasn't really expecting much at sunset, but as I was preparing dinner I snuck a peek outside, and was pleasantly surprised!  The clouds had a slight glow to them that contrasted beautifully with the darkness.
The photo isn't super crisp since I was rushing to take a picture or two before the colors disappeared... but for being taken from the deck I'm pretty happy with how it turned out!
Happy Halloween!

Fall in Drake Park

Fall is one of my favorite times of the year. Yes, I prefer warmer weather, but you can't beat the beautiful natural colors that the cooler Fall weather brings. I feel like I missed out on a lot of those colors this year; when I left for Maui, the trees had green leaves, and by the time I returned a lot of the trees near me were already bare. However, Drake Park did not disappoint me this morning.

PS - I know I posted a photo similar to this one last year, but every time I walk in this area (especially this time of year), it makes me smile. So, I think it deserves another post.

Central Oregon Pumpkin Co

First, I know it has been a while since my last post - I had a VERY last minute opportunity to go to Maui for 2 weeks that I just couldn't pass up. Now though, I'm back and re-settled!
Yesterday we went to Central Oregon Pumpkin Co. (Smith Rock Ranch) to pick out pumpkins, walk the themed "maize" (This year's theme is Pacman), and enjoy a beautiful fall day in Central Oregon! We did just that, and could not have asked for better weather!
