I've been so busy writing lately that I haven't taken the time to post any of the photos that I've accumulated over the last couple of weeks. So without further ado...
Turkeys crossing a street in Coeur d'Alene. Lots of turkeys. To my way of thinking, this is the best place to be, so close to Thanksgiving. You can't hunt within city limits!
Speaking of Coeur d'Alene, I spotted this glorious tree of yellow and stopped to take photos.
These magnificent oaks are in a Coeur d'Alene park.
Chickens in the barn.
Rooster Snap in all his glory.
A chipmunk on a roll of fencing...
...secure in the knowledge that Lydia (the white blob of fur in the background) can't get to it.
A cool carving in a vet's office, made from a single burl.
As the parents of daughters, Don and I appreciated this bumper sticker.
The view from down by the lake. Man, I love fall colors.
All those beautiful leaves!
A couple of kids riding in the back of a truck. They were having the time of their life.
I passed this fellow in town the other day, and it suddenly dawned on me how different life is in a small town in Idaho. If someone in New York City were to walk down the street with a rifle slung on his back, what do you suppose would happen to him? Here, it's no big deal. Shrug.
Another not-atypical Idaho site: goats in the back of a truck, pulled up to a restaurant drive-through. Well, why not?
Matilda eating some grain. The chickens were very interested.
A shaft of sunlight brightens a larch branch...
...and a single leaf.
