The clouds are hanging low here. Have been for the past few days. Been dark, rainy, cool. Put pants on for the first time in months yesterday. I don’t think summer’s left the building for good, but she’s glancing at her watch and getting her coat ready. In fact, with the heavy cloud cover, I’m having problems with my satellite internet connection and am posting this from the local library.
Anyway, before she heads out, I wanted to give Summer her due.
Saturday was one of the nicest days of the season. Seventy five degrees, blue skies, big puffy clouds. Karin and I took Tasha for a walk in our usual spot — an old railroad line that’s now a walking trail. It’s just over border in Vermont, less than 3 miles from our door. It’s a beautiful place and we’re grateful to have it so close. Perfect for all seasons.
Here’s some shots of the day.
the train trestle over the Mettowee river begins our journey
cows are a common sight. nice chain on this one.
a river runs through it (a stream, anyway)
you never know who you’ll meet on the path
my favorite shot of the day. corn, farm, hills, and Simpsons clouds…
Hopefully the summer will hang on for a little longer. But if not, I’m still grateful for all the beauty.
