Mother Nature handed us a beauty yesterday.
My sisters, their pups, Willie and I took advantage and took our cameras to the aspen grove up Rapid Lightning Creek Road.
At long last, the color has come, and it IS indescribably beautiful.

with my cell phone day before yesterday:
Murray's field on Selle Road.
|This is taken off North Center Valley Road where Bert Wood keeps another herd of cows and calves.|
|I started picking apples yesterday. They aren't the prettiest apples in the world, but with my occasional pruning, they've doubled in size since we first moved here. Great for jellies and sauce.|
I'm to the stage where I'll have to put the ladder in the pickup to pick the rest of this year's crop. At least, I've rescued what's left on the bottom limbs after daily deer visits.
|The deck view is exhibiting more and more of a touch of fall.|
|And these trees, pictured last week, are showing more color. I have to enjoy them now because I sure don't enjoy those poplars when they take their time dropping millions of leaves for me to pick up.|
|This pretty waterfall is just off the road a few miles up Rapid Lightning Creek. Last time I stopped here to take pictures, I was with Bill and Annie. It was winter time about three years ago, and we were geocaching.|
|Rolling Thunder Greeting Committee, I guess. Amazing what we run across when we take the back roads.|
|The horseback riders: Laura, Maryann, Laurie, Barbara and Marianne|
|Barbara's horse Dusty is so laid-back that she can take hundreds of photos with her big lens.|
|Bill and Laura enjoying a chat.|
|Amber fields make for neat photos. We were standing in front of the Boy Scout Jamboree Friendship Tower as Barbara took a group shot. So, of course, I shot back with my cell phone.|
|Maryann and Capone. Capone usually performs in a horse show arena, but he seemed to really enjoy his experience yesterday at Farragut.|
|Laura saddling up April.|
|All the pretty horses: Dusty, April and Scout.|
|Barbara and Laurie have gone "bling."|
|Laura and Barbara dishing up the first helping of sandwiches and chips.|
|Good talk; good sandwiches.|
|Ahhh! It's a wonderful life.|
|Miss Lily with the storm in the background. We, thankfully, missed it.|
|Bill's trusty steed needed no treats.|
