Autumn Adventures have begun... Yesterday marked the first day of autumn, and the weather was glorious. It also happened to fall on my birthday. You couldn't have asked for a more picture perfect day!
Even had a parade in honor of my birthday!
(Actually, Homecoming kicked off )
Took the day off today. Extended birthday celebration...
Drove out to Jim Edgar Panther Creek Wildlife Area.
Surprised to see harvest has begun.
I don't remember harvest being this early in a long time!
