Embracing Fallishness

and freshly minted clean air!!!

We finally had a storm come through and clean the air up. Shelly and I took Bentley and headed up into the Blue Mountains which is nearby for us. We took a bumpy dirt back road climbed about 4000 ft up into the trees and a bit of fall color. It smelled so good in the damp forest. We entered a campground that I have always just driven by. The campground host was the only person there and all the sites were open which was surprising. We took a short walk around the campground loop and wandered a short trail in the trees with a little creek bubbling nearby and thought we heard the sound of bugling elk. It was restorative. So here are a couple shots from yesterday, and one to put in perspective what it was like in the smoke.
