|Sunday morning walk|
Can't believe summer is officially over. Where did it go? I know I keep saying it, but time sure has a way of flying by.
Pearl, our 2013 JK Wrangler, turned over 100,000 driving miles. She has been an awesome ride and given us so many adventures and so much fun.
So Monday, we took her in for a check-up. All was good except she needed new rotors and brake pads. Joe had suspected that would be the case and wasn't surprised.
The folks at BRAKEmax are very professional, thorough, friendly, and reasonable. They don't just do brakes...they do complete tire and auto service.
Our only other outing for the week (We don't count grocery shopping as an outing!) was a beautiful hike at Madera Canyon. We stopped by to pick Randy up and the three of us had a delightful time hiking the Upper Proctor Trail. It's a trail we never get tired of. It was especially nice on Wednesday morning as it had rained the night before.
To the south the skies were still overcast.
But looking north, we could see blue.
I enjoyed everything...the rushing water,
the hundreds of butterflies,
|These little butterflies were blue with their wings open.|
the red-headed caterpillars,
and the best hiking buddies who never complained a single time about my stopping to take pictures...alot !
The rest of the week was quiet around the oasis.
Mrs. Flicker stopped by for a visit...it's always a treat to see her.
She was enjoying herself at the feeder until a huge chunk of seeds fell to the ground. It frightened her and she quickly flew away.
We enjoyed some pretty sunrises on our walks.
And yesterday morning we watched the sunrise from home since we were hiking later.
It rained three afternoons this week. Yesterday we were even under a flash flood warning.
Each day we saw a rainbow.
And this morning, just like that it was fall.
I'll close with a few more photos from the week. Until next time,
HAPPY TRAILS !
