Off to the mountains

It is raining now and I love the sound and the smell. I am off to one of the canyons to see the Fall leaves in all their beauty. The yellow Aspen stand out so brilliant among the dark green pines. I can smell the Fall in the streams and the earth and the forests. I can smell Winter coming. The red Oak are so bright and beautiful that it almost hurts my eyes to look..
around each curve in the road I gasp at more beauty of leaves in all colors of green, orange, and even purple. I just can't seem to get enough of these masterpieces so I have to keep going up all the canyons and valleys I can.

When I ride my horse up one of the many trails it seems like we become one with nature. Sometimes I don't even want to go back to the busy world. Riding back down the canyon watching the sun go down and the sunset comes alive I count my blessings .
