Magnificent Fall

As I was driving out of our road to go to my silent retreat (that will be another blog post!) the sun was shining on the Tamaracks below Roman Nose Mountain and WOW it was so stunning! I got some pics but they are rather smoky but I had to post them anyway. The Tamaracks and the other trees (mostly birch and aspen) are all changing at once this year. Last year they were staggered; Tamaracks went last. So the yellow is so intense, everywhere! I am so grateful for my life, my friends, my family, and this beautiful planet.

Moose Friend

Last spring I was working at my art table in the guest room and saw movement out of the other window and look who it was! She hung around for a few days so we named her Matilda. They were all so tired from the insane winter. We really tried to give her space and leave her alone but she was just like...."whatever". She had the most pathetic look on her face! I so adore these amazing furry beings and the peace and joy they add to my life. But of course I also avoid getting eaten or stomped. They give me peace and joy from a nice healthy distance!

I went down to City Beach and saw this guy the other day...felt rather bad for waking him up but the photos are kind of funny!

I spent this past weekend at a wonderful self-healing (among other things) seminar. It was an amazing, awakening experience, and it was at a beautiful home in Hope, Idaho overlooking Lake Pend Oreille. Here are some photos from that location. Have a great day!!! All is well. PS I just heard a beautiful song: "All Will BE Well" by the Gabe Dixon Band

There's A Fungus Among Us!

It has been raining (finally!) and on my hike today I noticed so many mushrooms. Wow they sure do grow fast. One of these days I will have to find out what the good ones are....and what the REAALLLLLLY good ones are. Heh heh. Just kidding. Just a few Juncos, too. It is a bit blurry but they sure are cute. Fall is hitting fast. There is SNOW in the forecast for the end of the week! Yikes!

National Bison Range, Montana

I'm going to post my pics from a few weeks ago, before I had the blog. We went to the National Bison Range with our guests from Denmark, Tanya and Laurits. We drove around once and hardly saw anything. We would have had to call it the National Chipmunk Range, but the Dude is so smart and he convinced us to go around again. And LOOK what we saw! It is a beautiful place and only $5 to get in. The bull elk gathered his harem out of the creek, and walked right in front of our truck and up the mountain. They really are majestic!
