I love how this post starts with orange pumpkins and ends with an orange sunset. But what else would you expect on an absolutely outstanding fall day. Sunny, 80 degrees and lots of fall fun. There were pumpkins and apples at this orchard.
And what an abundance of riches. Right next door at Carpenter Nature Center in Prescott they were doing a raptor release. We saw hawks, owls, kestrals and eagles up close and personal. I love this beauty shot.
We always hike Maiden Rock bluff in the fall. And we always see eagles soaring overhead.
Can you spot the train?
The vista in the other direction.
But it wasn't just sweeping views that enchanted. Shrooms!
And colorfully spotted walnuts.
And pompous fronds blowing in the breeze.
We had pizza at my favorite place. The Nelson Stone Barn. But you already know that.
Dramatic clouds illuminated the night.
Fall colors sprouted in the hills. Not many restaurants have this country view.
We made a surreal pit stop at a sand pit.
But now we had to quicky make tracks...
To enjoy a spectacular sunset before we drove home.
What a day.
